Shrimp Manicotti

Kilsharion Land


I made this the other night and my husband loved it. It's a fairly simple recipe and very, very tasty.

Placing some bread in the oven to heat during time that the manicotti is sitting after being removed from the oven is a good addition. As well, you could mix a little more olive oil in with the garlic and then put basil, oregano and some crushed red pepper for a dip for the bread.

How to Make Shrimp Manicotti


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F
  2. Take a large pot and fill 2/3 full with water and bring to a boil.
  3. While the water is heating, place a large skillet over med-high heat and coat it with the olive oil
  4. Crush the garlic cloves and place them in the skillet. You want them in there to add a touch of flavor to the shrimp.
  5. While the oil is heating, chop the shrimp into about 1/4 inch sized pieces. Toss them into the hot skillet and cook them until they are just pink.
  6. Shred the asiago, pecorrino romano and parmessan into a large bowl. Cut the fresh mozzarella into cubes and put into the bowl.
  7. Place the manicotti shells in the boiling water and cook until al dente. Remove and drain as they finish cooking - it doesn't matter if they get cold.
  8. As the shrimp cooks through, put them into the bowl with the cheeses.
  9. Add a 1/3 cup marinara into the bowl with the shrimp and cheese and toss until thoroughly mixed.
  10. Fill the cooked shells with the mixture.
  11. Take the remaining mixture (generally there will be some left over) and mix in with the remaining marinara sauce.
  12. Pour over the filled manticotti shells and grate the "Topping Cheese" Asiago, Pecorinno and Parmessan over the top.
  13. Place in the oven and cook for 25 to 30 minutes.
  14. Remove and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes and serve.
