Gotta admit that I changed a few things here, but the end result was GREAT! I used about 2/3 of the spinach listed, but only 'cause I'm not a big fan of spinach, & chopped it up even more! That done, I followed the directions & had a very nice manicotti meal, topped with some homemade sauce I had in the freezer! VERY, VERY NICE, & thanks for posting your recipe!

This is so easy to prepare! I thought it had just a little too much spinach. I was thinking of trying this again with mushrooms in place of spinach. I added prepared tomato sauce before cooking. I love how easy and quick this recipe comes together!
