    My family loved it! I adjusted it a little by adding a small can of Romano beans (rinsed/drained) to the filling and put mozzarella on top with the Parmesan, then turned on the broiler for the last couple of minutes to crisp it up. Will become one of our regular dishes. Thanks!

    This was fantastic -- perfect for a candle-lit dinner at home :D We made it a bit healthier by using whole wheat lasagne sheets, substituting dry-pressed cottage cheese for the ricotta, and skipping the canned pasta sauce in favour of making our own (DeSouter's Marinara Sauce Recipe #176534). We sprinkled a mixture of Parmesan and mozzarella (75:25) on top.

    I loved this recipe. We had so much fun making this. My husband broke out his 20-year-old Super Shooter, and I used that to fill the tubes! I was careful as well to not stir the tubes that often as they cooked, and only a couple split open. Note that in America, these are called manicotti, not canneloni, in the grocery store (we bought Barilla manicotto tubes). They also came in a package of 14, not 20, and that amount left us with 1 unused tube. So plan on having 13 filled tubes. The final observation I would make is they do not include the carbs of the pasta. If you add those in, you get exactly 50g of carbs in 3 tubes (although I suppose this varies by pasta sauce used). So be cautious, and if you need to, just eat 2 tubes. With a side salad, you will be filled up.

    Superb!! I used fresh spinach at a guess of about half a bunch and added some precooked, then minced mild Italian sausage (2). First timer myself and my girlfriend just loved it as did I of course.

    I had this at my sister's last weekend; my brother in-law made it. It was so yummy that my DH has been wanting me to make it again--I did last night. I opted to top it with mozzarella instead of the parmesan. Easy and delicious! Thank you Miraklegirl for sharing this recipe; it will become a staple!
