Expert Tips

Try using a baby spoon to fill the manicotti shells—it works great!

To lower the fat content in this dish, use lean ground beef or ground turkey. Part-skim ricotta can also be used.

Line baking dish with foil. Prepare recipe as directed—except cook pasta shells for half of the minimum cook time. Place stuffed shells in baking dish. Wrap tightly; freeze 2 to 3 months. Freeze sauce and mozzarella cheese in separate containers. Before baking, thaw overnight in refrigerator. Heat oven to 350°F. Uncover baking dish. Pour sauce over stuffed shells; sprinkle with cheese. Bake as directed, adding 5 to 10 minutes to baking time.
