A delicious baked pasta recipe with a blend of three creamy cheeses. I experimented with different ingredients for the cheese filling and found this delicious blend.

This is really good, but you can cut down on cooking time by not cooking the manicotti, stuff them "raw", so to speak. Add a cup of water to your spag. sauce....heating it in the microwave before you are ready to bake your pasta.....pour over your manicotti before baking...cover and bake!!!!!

This dish would garner more compliments if just a little care went into the sauce. Chop up some onions, and saute them in olive oil for a couple of minutes on high heat, throw in minced garlic for another minute. Add some fresh basil for one more minute, and top with shredded or julienned carrot. Stir in your saute with the sauce before adding to the pan of pasta; you'll add more volume, more flavor, and the dish will look even nicer. Plain "spaghetti sauce" reminds me of a cafeteria, and should be avoided! (Bonus: throw on a very small portion of grated asiago on the dish in the last ten minutes, and finish off uncovered. The cheese will brown slightly.)

Very good! Based on previous complaints of this dish being bland, I used 1/4 cup fresh, shredded spinach (instead of parsely) added 1/2 tsp garlic salt and 1/2 tsp garlic powder to the cheese mix. Very tasty turnout! My only complaint is filling the pasta...very messy and somewhat time consuming. Overall, good and will make again!
