"These are Cannelloni shells rather than Manicotti Shells (Manicotti are definitive tubes which are stuffed while Cannelloni are round, flat pasta or crepes rolled around filling). They turned out abs..." See moreolutely PERFECT though and I would highly recommend as these are so much easier to use than store-bought manicotti shells which always tear on me during the boiling process and are a pain in the butt to stuff. Not only that, these are tasty, foolproof, and uses ingredients one always has on hand. I used my smallest (6") non-stick frying pan, wiped with an oiled paper towel between 1/4 cupfuls of batter, tipping the pan immediately after pouring to get the batter evenly over the bottom of the pan and form perfect circles. After about 15 seconds I turned them over for another 10-15 seconds, took them out and put on waxed paper until ready to use. I used the filling and sauces from the "Manicotti Alla Romana" from this site (which I refer to as Cannelloni when using these batter shells), excellent! These are also awesome using a tiny bit of extra water and 1/8 cupful batter for crepes, this is a great recipe."
"If you want a quick and easy Manicotti shell...this is the recipe to use! I wanted to make homemade Manicotti shells since I always used dry tubes that would split right open when I filled them. These..." See more came out perfect. I used less batter in the pan though. I like a paper thin Manicotti shell. I also used Non-Stick cooking spray instead of butter and no need to cook both sides, they are perfectly fine cooked on 1 side!"
