This recipe is not difficult to make, but it is somewhat prep intensive. While we liked the final result, we didn't love it enough to have again. The bechamel sauce was a bit plain. This was worth a try and was a good way for me to use up some leftover smoked mozzarella.
This was wonderful!! The beans gave it great texture. I did add sauteed mushrooms to the filling. I took this dish to work and my co-workers absolutley raved about it! Manicotti is difficult to work with but it is well worth the effort. After assembeling the manicotti, I covered it, placed in the pan in the refrigerator and took it out the next day to bake and take to work. It was terrific!
