We made this for our thanksgiving eve dinner, we usually have something Italian each year and gather with those of our children who can come home on Wednesday, then we have traditional thanksgiving on Thursday with those who can come. Everyone agreed this was an excellent Manicotti, my oldest son said he had one suggestion, he wants to try it with some Italian sausage added. We plan to try that next time.
I followed the recipe as written tweaking the amount on several ingredients, the spinach, Parmesan cheese and parsley. I doubled the recipe and made two 9 x 13 pans. In the doubled cheese mixture I used one 16 ou. package of frozen spinach instead of two 10 ou. packages, for our taste it was the perfect amount of spinach. I used twice as much Parmesan Cheese as the double recipe calls for, two cups of instead of one. I added one cup to the cheese mixture and sprinkled 1/2 cup on top of each 9 x 13 pan. I substituted 1 teaspoon of dried parsley flakes for the 2 teaspoons fresh parsley. I also sprinkled a very generous half cup of mozzarella cheese over the tops of each.
We enjoyed this so much it will become our 'go to' Manicotti recipe. Thanks for sharing it.
