This was amazing. I didn't know what to expect because I had never made anything like Manicotti or stuffed shells before...and my kids had never tried it before. A few points and modifications. For the cheese mixture, I added some extra spices to taste (parsley, Italian seasoning, and sage), plus 3 large cloves of garlic. As people previously suggested, I only cooked the pasta for 8 minutes so that it wasn't fully cooked, which made it easier to stuff them. It cooked the rest of the way in the oven. I also used a one gallon ziplock bag and cutoff a corner of the bag to help insert the cheese mixture. Next I ended up using about 3 times as much sauce to help make sure the pasta cooked in the sauce. Finally, I covered the pan with aluminum foil for the first 30 minutes, and then uncovered it for the last 15 minutes. It came out amazing and the pasta was cooked just right.
