I've made this for friends and they love it. My husband eats it also. It is easy to make with an easy clean up which I love.

I loved this and was able to freeze it for another night.

I made stuffed shells instead of manicotti shells and the stuffing was the exact amount for one box. I also stuffed and froze some of the shells for future use. Excellent and easy to prepare. Loved it.
