    This is a delicious meal. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of how time consuming it is to fill the shells, otherwise I'd make it much more often.

    I have never ate nor cooked manicotti before, so this was a first for me the whole way around. I love the idea of the cream cheese, which seemed like a simple additive. My husband absolutely loved it, but to me seemed a little dry (remember, i've never had it before) He assured me that is what the texture is supposed to me. But either way, the taste was delicious. Will be making again! Thanks for the great recipe!

    I've made this twice now. While I don't really care for that much work to make dinner, I did it. I liked it, but my husband really didn't. It was the sauce that turned him off. That's why I gave it 3.

    The only change I made was to substitute spinach for the broccoli. My family and guests loved it, and I got a call later in the week asking for the recipe. Very easy to make. Will definitely make again.
