I made this last week and thought it was great. In fact, it got thumbs up from both my fiancee and my 15 year old daughter as well as myself. At first, I thought that the 4 cups of water included in the sauce part of the recipe was way too much but I was wrong...it cooks down quite a bit in the oven and does thicken up. For the filling, I used 1/2 cup fine bread crumbs instead of the bread slices and it was perfect. Also, I filled 10 manicotti shells instead of the 8 the recipe says. I will definately be making this again.

I really enjoyed this!! I like manicotti, but do not like ricotta cheese so to find a recipe with a meat filling was great. It was a little time consuming to prepare, but worth it! Made for Fall PAC 2008 and will be making often.
