Ever since I began to make this recipe, I'll never go back to store bought shells again! It's actually easier to make and stuff your own crepe's than it is to boil the shells and have them fall apart while filling them. I can't believe how easy it is and my grandmother is proud of me now! Whenever I make these Manicotti, i always make extra and freeze them individually without sauce, so that on those nights when your running late, take a jar of sauce and layer in a baking dish and cover with foil. bake about 45 minutes and have a home cooked meal in less than an hour! Just add a salad and bread! I hope you all enjoy!
