"Old world-style manicotti dish with a couple of my own touches. Absolutely delicious! The best manicotti recipe out there! I recommend using Bertolli® Italian Sausage, Marinara with Burgundy Wine, or Tomato and Basil sauce flavors." — Cherokee Princess

I made this dish exactly to the recipe. It turned out great! Flavorful and very filling! The filling that you stuff the shells with makes quite a bit - I stuffed a whole box of 14 shells ( mind you they were not the large shells) to the brim and I still had about 3 cups of the filling left over. I made a lasagna with the left over and froze it for another meal so not too bad of a problem after all :) ! My suggestion would be to scale down the filling ingredients or make sure to have more shells on hand and buy the larger shells. Perfect recipe for company or a larger group!
Loved this recipe! I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese and put a couple cloves of garlic in the mixture and blended it all together in the food processor. SO good! It was so tasty that I kept sampling the stuffing mixture and by the time dinner was ready I didn't have an appetite anymore Haha!
Very good dish! It made a lot of filling- I had enough for all 12 manicotti and probably could have filled 3 more. I froze half of them, since it was only 2 of us eating that night. These are very creamy and flavorful. Only change I made was to add about a tablespoon of minced garlic to the meat. Will make this one again!
The family loved this recipe! I did substitute ricotta for the cottage cheese, and put some minced garlic in it also. It was wonderful.
I guess I should have paid attention to the reviews. This makes a heck of a lot more filling than you need
