    Debber's Note:

    Seems kinda pointless to me, to go to all the trouble of making & stuffing the 'cotti's and then NOT have meat in the sauce. So I adjusted this found recipe from *Grandma's Kitchen* recipe cards, to include ground beef in the sauce. No complaints from the Peanut Gallery--and they're SO discerning an audience!

      Yummo!!! I made this the other night for dinner. I made my own meat sauce using ground beef. My box included 14 manicotti noodles so I used them all, but realized there wouldn't be enough filling and don't think there would have been for the 12 either. I only had 16 oz. of ricotta so I added 16 oz. of cottage cheese with the ricotta and since I made my own sauce which included dry basil, I left it out of the filling, instead added dried parsley. This takes some time to come together, but so worth it!! I made 1/2 to eat for dinner that night and I have the other half in the freezer. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR.
