I am going to post this one for Hayley and her daddy. These Homemade Manicotti just melt in your mouth! They are super easy to make you just need a really good 8” non-stick sauté pan. The original recipe called for store bought meat sauce but I have substituted “Magic” Meat Sauce because it just takes this dish over the top!
2 cups ricotta cheese
1 ¾ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
¾ cup grated Romano cheese
1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons milk
3 large eggs
¾ cup all-purpose flour
3 cups “Magic” meat sauce
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl,
combine the ricotta, 1 cup mozzarella, ½ cup Romano, the
parsley, and milk.
2. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with 1 cup water. Whisk in the
3. Heat a greased 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Ladle 3 tablespoons batter into the skillet, swirling to cover
the surface of the pan. Cook for 1 minute, flip and cook for
1 minute more. Repeat with the remaining batter, greasing
the skillet after each crepe. Stack the crepes on a plate.
4. Spread half of the meat sauce into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
Spoon the cheese mixture down the center of each crepe. Roll
Closed; arrange in the baking dish. Top with the remaining meat
sauce and cheeses. Bake for 25 minutes.
