This was really good! I like manicotti but not a big fan of ricotta cheese so this is perfect without it. I had some leftover meat sauce so used that instead of the marinara sauce and I did add a little parmesan cheese to the filling and also on the top for serving...I think next time I will try a little mozarella cheese in the filling as well. Made for I Recommend Tag.
