Very good!! It was easy and tasted great. One of the few stuffed manicotti recipes I could find that had spinach in it, which we love! The only thing I did differently was that I did not use any meat. We like manicotti with just marinara. I probably would add a little salt to the ricotta mix next time, but it was great without it. Thanks Chef, we will use this recipe again!
