One of things that sure puts me in a better mood is yummy food. And this one is definitely yummy. I love manicotti and I usually make them with spinach and ricotta cheese. But this time, I did something different… one because I didn’t have any frozen spinach… so I thought, how should I use manicotti without any frozen spinach. And a thought came to me “let’s stuff them with some shredded chicken, Parmesane cheese and ricotta together!
