  1. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing. YUM, YUM, YUM !!!!
  2. This is the exact recipe my Aunt from Italy gave me about 50 years ago. Everyone always enjoys this recipe!
  3. This was great! Followed the recipe exact. My husband loved this so much he had it for breakfast and lunch the next day!!
  4. Made for Fall 2007 PAC. This was absolutely spectacular. Because of a wheat allergy I couldn't make it with manicotti because I couldn't find them. I did, however, make it with 10 oz of penne and mixed the spagetti sauce in with all the other ingredients, spread it in a pan and topped it with mozzarella cheese. This will definitely be on my list of items to make often. I like the fact that there is spinach in it - all it needs is a side salad and you've got a really filling meal. Thanks Sunshine!


<p>I have lived in New Orleans my entire life. The food, the people and the history are the best. I have three grown sons who love my cooking and four&nbsp;grandchildren who tell me the smells in my kitchen are the best! Gotta love 'em. <br /><br />I love my Zaar membership. There are so many talented cooks here. I have tried recipes and learned things I never would have thought I could do. <br /><br /><br /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/snow-queens-sm.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/cc-banner-7-09.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp340/northwestgal/redbannercopy.jpg border=0 alt=New /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BANNERS/TagRed-STKR.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/KBparticipation.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/i-connected-125.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CameraLesschef-STICKER.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/7016b640.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee177/pelysma/ssb08banner_300.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg alt=/ /></a></p>
