Manicotti

This recipe is from the "Sopranos Family Cookbook" and this recipe is the best thing I've found so far. The description for making the crepes and assembling everything makes it so easy. You can use any Marinara Sauce or Sunday Gravy recipe that you know and love.

directions

  • To make the crepes: in a large bowl, whisk together the ingredients until smooth.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat a 6 inch skillet over medium het.
  • Brush the pan lightly with oil.
  • Holding the pan in one hand, spoon in about 1/3 cup of the crepe batter and immediately rotate and tilt the pan to completely cover the bottom.
  • Pour any excess batter back into the bowl.
  • Cook the crepe for one minute, or until the edges turn brown and begin to lift away from the pan.
  • With your fingers, flip the crepe over, and cook for 30 seconds more, or until spotted with brown on the other side.
  • Slide the cooked crepe onto a plate.
  • Cover with a piece of wax paper.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter, stacking the crepes and separating each one with a piece of wax paper (The crepes can be made up to 2 days ahead. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until ready to use).
  • Turn the oven to 350.
  • To make the filling: stir all the filling ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Then, to assemble: Spoon a thin layer of the marinara sauce into a 13x9x2 inch baking dish.
  • Place about 1/4 cup of the filling lengthwise down the center of a crepe, roll it up, and place it seam side down in the dish.
  • Continue with the remaining crepes and filling, placing them close together.
  • Spoon on the remaining sauce.
  • Sprinkle with the cheese.
  • Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the manicotti are heated through.
  • Serve hot.

    Excellent crepe recipe! So much lighter and more tender than standard pasta manicotti. Don't overjazz the sauce. Stick with fresh herbs and fresh tomatoes (this time of year). You really want to taste the crepes and cheese.

    So friggin' good. I remove about 1/3 of the ricotta and add about 2/3 lbs. sauteed ground turkey, minced broccoli, and sauteed minced onions. Let it cool before you add it to the rest of the filling.<br/><br/>Cook it the same way otherwise. So good.<br/><br/>- Gali

    This was out of this world. After making fresh crepes, I'll never go back to store bought shells. The crepes were so easy to make and really didn't take that much longer to make than boiling store bought shells and stuffing. Next time I'll make a double recipe of crepes though. I got 8 out of the mixture and stuffed them full but still had a lot of filling left over. I'll stuff extra and freeze as another reviewer suggested. I made this with Kittencal's vegetarian marinara recipe, yum!

    Wonderful! Making the crepes was a cinch. I doubled the crepe recipe & made 1 recipe of the filling (adding a pinch of sugar & nutmeg). I thought it was the perfect amount of filling for each crepe. This one will go in my "Recipes to Impress" file.
