I just wanted to say this is a WONDERFULLLLLL recipe! It's a lot easier to prepare the manicotti with the shells uncooked! I made for my mom on mother's day and it was just perfect!! I wasn't sure if I should try since no one has rated it, but I am glad I did. I impressed the entire family enjoyed including my mother an awesome cook!! Ps: wouldn't change a thing!

This recipe gets rave reviews from me and my family. One improvement I've made is to shred the cooked chicken in a food processor first - it makes the stuffing of the shells easier. This recipe is a taste sensation! I make it for company when I want to impress.

Major mod here -- I didn't have manicotti, so I made a casserole. I put a layer of cooked past in a caserrole dish, then layered the spinach/chicken mix on top, then another layer of pasta, and finally the sauce. I'd add lots of spinach to this -- it tastes good. Oh... and then layer top with breadcumbs and bake. In last 10 minutes add grated cheese on top.
