    bert's Note:

    This recipe came in a Milk calendar a few years back. It looks time consuming but really it is quite easy to put together.

      I had this recipe from the Milk Calendar as well, but misplaced it, or it got thrown out by mistake. Thank you for posting it. I love this recipe even though it is a bit laborious. This comes in handy after cooking turkey for the Holidays, and there's left-overs. Yummy!!

      Excellent recipe.....I only had a few minor changes. I could not find either cannelloni or manicotti at the stores so I used jumbo shells. They worked perfectly. I also used only about 4 ounces of the mushrooms and added some shredded Italian blend cheese to the filling and to the top. This was a great recipe Bert, thanks for sharing.
