      Turn out Great My family loved it. Helpfull hint use a ziplok bag to fill manicotti. Just fill the bag and cut the corner off and you are ready to fill. This saves time and clean up.

      I agree with the other reviewers...the creaminess of the cream cheese adds that special something! I had never filled manicotti before so found it challenging; to save the trouble next time, I might just roll up the filling in lasagna, since it's covered with the sauce and cheese anyway. For me, the recipe made 12 manicotti instead of nine.

      These were fairly simple to make and very impressive! We loved the taste of these and will certainly have them again. I "piped" my filling into the manicotti using my older pastry bag which made filling the manicotti easy-peasy! Thank you for a delicious meal tonight weekend cooker!
