WOW! These tender manicotti are much easier to prepare than you'd think. I got this from a good friend after having it at her house. I make it with or without meat. I think it's better with a combo of ground chuck and Italian sausage, but either way it's great. They'll want seconds!

Great recipe!! For me this made 12 manicotti and everyone of them were gobbled up before the night's end. I used 2 cups of flour and 2 cups of milk to make the crepes. Thanks Kades Mom!

Very tasty! I will definitely use this recipe again. Way easier than original manicotti and yet just as delicious. All 9 of my guests loved them too. However, I do think the measurements for the crepes might be off. I added a lot more milk and an extra egg as the original mixture seemed very thick and pasty - pretty much impossible to pour.
