      These were deslicious. Even though they were a bit tedious to make, it was well worth it.

      Excellent shells and filling. We like our sauce a bit spicier, so added sauteed onions, garlic, oregano, and basil to the sauce. Not much impact to calories, but SO much more flavor. Thanks! Diane

      Naturally I didn't follow the directions exactly (does anyone?), but it was still delicious. My variation was to cook regular small pasta shells and mix up the whole mess in the dish, and then top it with the red sauce. Less trouble than stuffing manicotti shells. But same flavor, I imagine!
