Cheese Manicotti

Lisa Swarm


My husband has had this recipe for years and the first time he made it for me I was hooked. He is not certain where he acquired it but I always ask him to make it for me on my birthday. I love this dish and am so glad he makes this for me. I know I am spoiled when he cooks this for me.
