THE KEY TO EASY MANICOTTI IS TO JUST BOIL THE PASTA TO HALF THE RECCOMENDED TIME ON THE PACKAGE- THEN PLACE COLD WATER OVER MANICOTTI. WHEN COOLED, REMOVE FROM WATER AND STUFF WITH PASTRY BAG OR ZIP-LOCK BAG (WITH CORNER CUT).

WOW, WOW, and WOW! I used ricotta instead of cottage, and I used mozerella/provolone mixture. Put a lil onion and garlic in with the hamburger while cooking, and WOW!

Ricotta was used instead of cottage cheese. Having no pastry bags, I stuffed a ziploc baggie with the filling and snipped off one corner. Added the topping mozzerella at the last five minutes. This dish was VERY well received!
