Like a lot of you, manicotti is one of my faves from my youth. I have a recipe that I have always used, but decided to try this one from Giada. However, I made slight adjustments. I only use the Bechamel sauce on the bottom of the dish (2 Tb butter, 4 tsp flour, 1 1/4 C 1% milk w/ 1 tsp flour whisked in, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, pinch of nutmeg = follow the rest of the directions, only simmer for only 5 mins... you can tell when it thickens.) I also used 15 oz of low-fat ricotta, 2 egg yolks, 1/4 C fresh basil and 1/2 lb of crabmeat. I topped the manicotti with 1 big jar of Prego Ricotta/Parmesan pasta sauce. Bake for 1 hour and then add a mixture of parmesan & romano cheese to the top and bake for another 15 mins. These changes make the recipe much healthier and more traditional. Enjoy! =)people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful... Was this review helpful to you? Yes | No We don't know who you are. Sign in or create an account

Very rich and tasty. Having lived in Maryland for 8 years, we had to add Old Bay Seasoning to the top for both color and flavor (but that's a personal preference with any crab recipe). We picked this recipe for our cooking class luncheon for 125 people and it got a hit. Thanks!people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful...

I can't believe you haven't made this yet! I came here to rate it,I made it tonight for the 2nd or 3rd time. If you use part skim ricotta add 2 egg yolks. I used only 1/4 cup basil, and thickened skim milk with cornstarch, as always. I also added parm to the bechemel sauce as we find it a little bland alone. If don't have fresh, hey it's 21 degrees in CT today, get the stuff near the seafood counter, don't get the little cans, they should be illegal.people found this review Helpful.
