I thought this recipe was great. I made it with a 1/2 alfredo 1/2 tomato sauce and it went perfect with the spinach. Make sure every bit of the manicotti is covered in sauce or the pasta will fry (just like lasagna if it's not covered).
Not as good as we wanted it be. Way too much spinach. Too much stuffing, overall. We stuffed all of the shells and had lots of extra filling. The shells need a lot more sauce to avoid being dry and brittle. This recipe needs work
/the best recipe ever!!!!
This recipe tasted great, but I had to lower my stars due to the degree of difficulty I experienced with stuffing the manicotti shells. Might have been my inexperience, but they turned out terribly.
I really love this dish.It was so good and my 4 year old like it to.I used spinach from the can.Mine only took 30 min to cook and 5 min before I check I put more sauce on it so it would not dry out.It's one of mine favorite's on this web site!
My family ate this up. I used a spagetti sauce with spinach in it and used fresh spinach that I wilted down in some italain dressing. I left the sauce off two of the noodles because my youngest can't handle tomatoes. Those noodles were a little tough, but he didn't mind.
Pretty good. I don't like mushrooms so didn't use them.
This was not a very easy recipe to make ... those manicotti shells are unwieldy! I put the stuffing in a Ziploc and snipped off the edge, but I got food everywhere anyway, haha! My boyfriend liked it but he loves Italian food. I thought it was okay. Sort of dry on the top, so be sure to add more sauce, maybe even right before the end of cooking, or just heat some up and pour it over the top afterwards. Also, there was wayyyyy too much spinach. If I make this again (which I might), I am going to use canned mushrooms (b/c fresh was just too annoying to clean, prep, slice and cook), less spinach and more sauce. Then I think it will be perfect.
I made this for a girls night out and everyone loved it. I did have a little trouble with the shells drying out where there was no sauce. Next time I may try adding more sauce or thinning out so all the shells are covered.
Excellent meal! A flavorful and nutritional spin on this classic Italian favorite.
