This dish was so simple to prepare… gotta love that! You could also easily prepare it in advance then pop it into the oven for the final cooking when you are ready to serve it. Michelle mentions that it freezes well too, which makes it even better. We didn’t have a morsel leftover, so I’ll have to take her word for it! Great idea for those unexpected visitors.
-So Barbara, if you have questions you wouldn’t bother to read the comment thread to see if they’ve already been answered. You would just ask again? If I have suggestions or questions, I’d check to be sure someone else hadn’t already made those same suggestions or asked the same questions and gotten answers first. But I guess that’s just me apparently.
I sure do wish people would read the previous comments before making their own. I have seen at least three different posts suggesting the use of a ziplock bag instead of a pastry bag for filling the tubes. Also, multiple people have given information on how to use uncooked shells. And then the same questions are asked again and again, even after they’ve been answered. Come on people. Read before you post. Am I the only one who feels this way??
-Please ladies DO NOT put plastic wrap on the dish and then foil. That is just for freezing the manicotti. As many have suggested use parchment paper and then foil to bake. So many have made this and not read the reviews. Very dangerous. I think the author of this recipe should go back in and correct this error before someone gets sick or worse. Great recipe.
