22 Aug 2015 – Manicotti

  • Manicotti shell ingredients:
    • Six eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups water
    • 1 1/2 cups of flour
    • pinch of salt
  • Filling ingredients:
    • 1 1/2 lbs of Ricotta cheese
    • 1 Eggs
    • Fresh mint
    • Romano cheese
  • Shell Instructions:
    • Mix eggs, water, and flour to make a batter ( like pancakes)
    • Heat a pancake griddle to 400 degrees or lower. When a splash of water sizzles it is ready.
    • Pour batter depending on how big you want them. I use a tablespoon; however, you can make them any size you want. When the edges start to cook flip them over.  By the time you have them all flipped remove them (starting with the first one you flipped) and place on wax paper to cool.  Continue until all the batter is gone.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Filling Instructions:
    • Fill with a mixture of Ricotta cheese, eggs, and fresh mint, and sprinkle in some Romano grated cheese. Start with 1 1/2 lbs of the Ricotta and add an egg to each 1 1/2 lbs.  You can adjust this depending on how many you wish to make.
    • Place sauce on the bottom of a casserole dish and place the Manicotti on top then cover with more sauce and grated cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees until the sauce bubbles.  Remove and serve.
  • Serves approximately 12
