    JohnTag's Note:

    Very simply put, Meat wrapped in a noodle. This is the fast and easy version of what I would take hours of prep for the holidays, but I want it fast now for dinner. Feel free to alter this to your liking, Please keep in mind, if I were making this for the holidays or guests, I would be making my own sauce and pasta dough. I have served the fast version to guest and they love it! You can cook this several ways, but this is for your electric pressure cooker, for fast and easy 20 minute dinner!

      This was enormously easy and quick, and has a lot of potential - but needs a lot of work as written.

      1. The filling was bland bland bland. Next time, I will use fresh garlic and quite a bit more herbs. Some peperoncino, too, probably. (These would probably also be great with a ricotta-and-egg-and-herb filling, though that would have to be piped into the tubes with a pastry bag.)

      2. There wasn't nearly enough sauce, and I used a full 25 ounce jar. The second layer of tubes were still way above al dente, and I cooked it at pressure for 12 minutes. Next time, 2 full jars of sauce (make sure the sauce comes at least 1/2 way up the sides of the SECOND layer of pasta).

      3. Note that most commercial pastas sell these as "manicotti" (in Italy, manicotti are made from crepes, rolled around a filling, while cannelloni are stuffed pasta). They generally come 14 to a box; this amount of filling can fill all 14.

      4. Don't over-stuff the pasta tubes; the meat needs a little room to expand, or it will either squeeze out the ends or burst the tube.
