      even faster, forget the home made sauce - use your favorite store bought sauce. Ricotta was flat so I added 3 tbls. of sugar, dash of sweet basil, salt & pepper to liking. grease large roast, store bought pan, plenty of room for all 12 manicotti's. Oven 400 degrees but only 40 min. tightly covered with aluminum foil. changes were and this is a great improvement. Use 32 oz. of sauce for top of manicotti's. BUT bottom of pan add 1/4 cup of water and 3/4 of jar of sauce. (this why large pan) also, only 10 min. cook with mazarella on top (or it will burn- 15 min. too long) this is GREAT and will do it again. Please listen to this. Thanks all......

      This was a great recipe and real easy! Made it while my mom-in-law was up and she really liked it. The only problem we had out of it was that the noodles got real dry on the bottem. I figure I just need to put some sauce under the noodles too. My son is just 1 and he wouldn't stop eating it! Thanks!

      This is awesome! So easy. I usually cook the sauce all day and the manicotti before stuffing. This was quick and much easier to stuff AND Delicious. I added 1 lb. of browned and drained ground chuck with tomatoes. My family loved it!
