This is from the January & February edition of Cook's Illustrated magazine. I knew as soon as I saw this recipe I had to make it...what a simple and easy way to make manicotti, even with a homemade sauce!! I love manicotti, but I just hate stuffing the shells!! Since this doesn't use manicotti shells, there's no messy stuffing involved, just rolling the cheese mixture in the lasagna noodles, which really cut down on my frustration factor in making manicotti. The original recipe calls for diced tomatoes to be pulsed in a food processor, but since I don't have one, I just bought crushed tomatoes and they seemed to work fine for me. I also used less salt than the recipe calls for, but that's just our personal preference. Hope you enjoy!
