As writen, I have to give this a 4....maybe even a 3.5. I was specifically looking for a manicotti recipe that used cottage cheese since I'm not fond of ricotta. This was good base, but to really get that exceptional taste I'm looking for I will be doing a lot of tweaking. Right off the cuff, I added onion, garlic, and basil. These ingredients seemed to really be missing. Next time, I also plan to cut the beef in half. The biggest problem I had with the recipe is that it was too beefy. A little beef adds interest, a whole pound overwhelmed the flavor so that I could scarcely taste anything else. I also plan to add spinach and mushrooms just for fun. I think I can turn this into a 5 star recipe after a couple more tries.
