Homemade Manicotti

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!

Homemade Manicotti


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.
