This was decent. I would say that the parsley was a little overpowering so next time, I might cut down on that. I also bought a canned spaghetti sauce instead of making the one suggested in the recipe. The manicotti went well with vegetable spaghetti sauce. I will make this recipe again, but I think I will cut down on parsley.
