Very good. Very easy. My husband even liked it, although next time I'll use more sauce.
My husband loved this very much.
Not good reheated, it was okay, not super impressed, do not know if I would make again.
I loved this recipe, it was without a doubt a big hit!!!
Great idea about using the plastic bag to fill the shells. I didn't use the pesto sauce, I used parsley. Very good!
This is so good and my husband says it tastes like Olive Garden's. Kids want me to make it often. Thanks, Krafts!
Delicious, just as good as Olive Garden. I leave out the pesto sauce and instead just shake some parsley flakes into the cheese mixture to make it prettier. Be careful not to overcook the pasta, or the tubes will crack; be careful not to overbake the dish or it will seem drier. I make a full batch and then have half for dinner that night; and freeze the rest to make an easy dinner for another night.
LOVE this recipe. There's just 2 of us so I half the recipe, using just one tray of Manicotti shells. I go slightly more than half of what the recipe calls for on cheese and use a whole jar of sauce in an 8 in square glass dish. I put lots of garlic and Italian seasonings in with the cheese. I leave out the pesto. Don't cook the noodles too long or they will break easier. After they are cooked I rinse them off and then put them back into the plastic tray so they don't break. I use a spoon to push the cheese into the manicotti. Keeping them in the tray while I'm doing this keeps it from being messy and makes it easy to go back and put a little extra cheese in some of the first manicotti I filled at the beginning. Making half the recipe feeds the 2 of us a hearty dinner and lunch for the next day. I haven't tried freezing this yet, but I imagine it would freeze well and I may make a full batch and freeze half in the future. I love that this recipe tastes as good as Olive Garden, but cost
delicious and easy to make!
I've made this receipe MANY times! I love it, its very easy! I use a little more pesto then it calls for just because I love love love pesto. Try it, its fast, easy, and soo delicious!!!
