Wow ...All I can say is WOW!
This was awesome. So good and easy to make too.
TO make it easier, I used the no boil lasagna noodles, just soaked them in warm H20 to make them pliable and filled and rolled them up.
I also added ground beef to my sauce.
Again so delish. Thanks so much for posting this is a keeper.

I made this tonight for the first time. It was very good. I have replaced all of my other manicotti recipes with this one. I used shells instead of manicotti since shells are easier to work with. Thanks for the great recipe.

I have to say this dish was delish! I didnt exactly go by the recipe because I didnt have the manicotti pasta. I planned on using penne pasta and just making it more like a baked ziti. I just stirred the cheese mixture into the penne before layering it in the baking dish. For the pasta sauce I used Kittencal's Marinara Pasta Sauce (Vegetarian). It all went very well together and was rich and filling! One more thing I didnt have was the ricotta so I just replaced it with more cream cheese. I normally always in all recipes halve the spinach bc I find that I never like the full amount in recipes. But I think in this, that I would of liked the full amount of spinach. This also would be great with some sort of meat in it if you didnt care it being vegetarian or not. Great recipe! I cant wait to try it in manicotti shells! Thanks!

Pretty good. I should've added salt. I had skipped it because I thought with all the cheese there would plenty. I also used my own spaghetti sauce with some meat. Had some extra filling, wondering if I could freeze it alone?

Delicious! I made this exactly as stated. Next time I plan on making extras and freezing them as the recipe is a bit too time consuming for normal night's meal. Thank you for another wonderful recipe, Kitten!

Awesome! I will never make another manicotti recipe. I followed the recipe exactly as written with the exception of undercooking the noodles by a minute so that they were easier to work with when putting the filling in. I also made the filling earlier in the day so it had time to meld together. The cream cheese is what really makes it different and absolutely delicious!

This was definitely great! The spinach filling was sooo good! All I could find was oven- ready canelloni shells. So, they were good b/c they were firm to fill, but their texture wasn't good. I will hunt out manicotti next time. I really liked this, but I didn't love it. Used the marinara recipe too. Thanks for sharing yet another great recipe!

This is a Delicious recipe, I have served this many times then I am having large gatherings as the vegetarian option but the meat eaters love it. Thank for sharing
