Very good recipe but too blank for my family who family loves spicy and fresh produce. I modified the sauce by adding finely chopped fresh garlic, onions and used hot italian sausage. The sauce was great. I also added 1 cup of the meat sauce to the cheese filling for the manicotti. This is a keeper.

I followed this recipe exactly, and I even did it right, so far as I can tell; however, I really did not care for it at all. The filling was okay, but I didn't like the sauce at all, and none of my kids liked it. Sorry, I don't normally review things unless I can give them a good rating; and this wasn't TERRIBLE by any means, just not something I would go out of my way to make again.

Very easy and outstanding! I halved my recipe, using 7 manicotti shells, 3 oz fresh spinach leaves, chopped, and halved the cheeses for the filling. The sauce was quick and tasty, having omitted the mushrooms entirely, and used a farmer's sausage, diced up, which I added to the sauce and didn't do any heating up, taking it straight to the baking dish. Baked about 40 mins. This made 2 meals for the 2 of us, along with a Greek salad one night, and Tomatensalat (Tomato Salad) (tomato salad) another night. Just great. Thanks.
