How to Make Manicotti
- Pasta Sheets:
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, beat just until smooth. Let stand at room temperature 30-60 minutes.
- Slowly heat a 6" square skillet over medium heat. Lightly oil skillet with olive oil every few sheets. Pour 3 tbs. batter onto skillet, rotating to evenly coat batter over the bottom. Cook until top is dry but bottom is not browned. Place on a wire rack to cool then stack with sheets of waxed paper in between each piece.
Mix all ingredients together in large mixing bowl.
Spread 1/4 cup filling down the side of a pasta sheet and roll up. Continue until all the pasta sheets and filling have been used. Spread 1 1/2 cups of your favorite pasta sauce in the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish. Place manicotti seam side down over sauce and cover with more pasta sauce. Cover baking dish with foil and bake at 350* for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
Prepare as above and freeze in baking dish. Thaw 1 hour at room temp. and bake covered for 1 hour at 350* or until bubbly.
