  • Place 3 cups flour in medium bowl; make well in center. Add 2 eggs and water to well; stir with fork until mixture forms stiff dough. Place on lightly floured surface; knead until dough is smooth and no longer sticky, adding remaining 1/4 cup flour as necessary. Cover and let stand 15 min.
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Using a pasta roller, roll out each piece to thin (20x5-inch) strip. Cut each strip crosswise into 5 equal pieces. Add, in batches, to large pan filled with boiling water; cook 5 min. or until tender. Drain well. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Combine ricotta, half the mozzarella, 1/2 cup Parmesan, remaining eggs and parsley. Spoon 1/2 cup pasta sauce onto bottom of each of 2 (13x9-inch) baking dishes. Spread 2 tablespoons ricotta cheese mixture onto each pasta piece; roll up. Place 20 manicotti, seam sides down, in each baking dish. Pour half the remaining pasta sauce over manicotti in each dish; top each with half the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.
  • Bake 25 to 30 min. or until heated through.

Serving Suggestion

Serve this classic dish with your favorite hot steamed vegetable.

Shortcut

Prepare as directed, substituting 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) dry manicotti for the homemade pasta. Cook as directed on package, omitting salt. To fill manicotti, spoon cheese filling into resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Cut off one bottom corners of bag; squeeze filling into manicotti. Makes 10 servings, about 3 manicotti each.

Spinach Manicotti

Omit parsley. Add 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained, to the prepared filling. Continue as directed.

Skillet Manicotti

Omit the homemade dough. Mix 3 cups flour, 3 eggs and 3 cups water in medium bowl with whisk until blended. Heat small nonstick skillet on medium heat. Drop 2 Tbsp. batter into center of skillet; tilt pan to make thin 5-inch circle. Cook 20 to 30 sec. or until tiny bubbles appear on surface and edge begins to pull away from side of pan; turn over. Cook an additional 20 or 30 sec. or until cooked through. (Do not brown.) Repeat with remaining batter to make a total of 36 manicotti rounds. Spread scant 1/4 cup ricotta cheese mixture onto each dough round; roll up. Place 18 of the manicotti, seam sides down, over 1/2 cup pasta sauce in each baking dish. Continue as directed. Makes 9 servings, 4 manicotti each.
