I just finished having this for dinner with garlic bread on the side! And boy was it good! I failed to buy fresh herbs on my trip to the store, but the dried version was just fine. Also, the store was out of manicotti, so I settled for cannelloni. Due to personal preference, I used original Prego pasta sauce. Thanks to those who suggested using a ziploc bag to fill the pasta and using fresh garlic instead of the powder. Worked like a charm. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks Ernie!

yummmm!!!!! Thanks for this recipe! I did add fresh mushrooms as well, and I actually added ground beef. My hubby is a meat eater! I browned the ground beef and put it in with the sauce. Everyone loved it!

This tastes like a manicotti version of the "veggie lasagna florentine" recipe on this site. Both are excellent vegetarian dishes. I made a couple of changes: to the ricotta mixture I sauteed the onion, garlic and also added 5 thinly sliced crimini mushrooms. I also added some fresh basil. I made the sauce using a can of tomatoes and a jar of strained tomatoes. I added garlic, italian seasoning, parsley, basil, oregano, salt and pepper and 1/4 cup of water. The sauce was quite watery, but it was perfect for the no-cook shells. When it came out of the oven, the sauce was thick and the tubes were perfectly cooked. I'll definitely make this again! Thanks
