Ninu Dalal's Note:
This manicotti is not your traditional manicotti. Using different cheeses and molasses in your filling, takes you to a whole different world

- 1Cook the manicotti tubes according to package directions. Drain when done.
- 2Mix ricotta cheese, American cheese, gouda cheese, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, fresh parsley, and molasses. If this is your first time using molasses, add molasses little by little so it won't become too sweet. Set the mixture aside.
- 3Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- 4Put the cheese mixture in a ziploc bag.
- 5Tie it on the top.
- 6Cut on of the corners. Make sure you don't cut the corner too big -- but just enough to let the filling out. Make sure its a sturdy ziploc bag, so when you squeeze it to get the cheese out, it wont rip.
- 7Squeeze cheese out of ziploc bag into the 4 manicotti tubes.
- 8Get a baking dish that would fit all four tubes.
- 9You may use any marinara sauce, even if its store bought. Mix marinara sauce with some sugar and lemon juice to give it a kick. I added several drops of Tabasco sauce in my sauce to make it a little bit spicy.
- 10Pour marinara sauce to the bottom of the baking dish, enough to cover the bottom of the dish.
- 11Place the stuffed manicotti tubes on top of the sauce.
- 12Pour marinara sauce over the manicotti.
- 13Sprinkle some American cheese on top.
- 14Add a little more sauce.
- 15Put it in the over for about 30-35 min.
