So I haven't been very good at this blogging thing but I did take pictures of a couple of things I cooked.  So today I decided that I would get caught up. First thing I documented making is manicotti. I found a recipe on a blog that I follow.  Her recipe said it makes eight but I cut all the ingredients in half and was able to make six stuffed noodles.  They turned out really good and tasted great.  Unfortunately, they don't make great leftovers and Stephen wasn't a huge fan.  They will probably not be something we make again but I would recommend the recipe for others.


Manicotti Recipe
from Elizabeth's Cooking Experiments

1 box manicotti shells

2 1/2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (I use the 5-cheese blend)
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
8 oz Ricotta cheese (whole milk variety)
12 oz cottage cheese 1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Marinara sauce (no set amount, but a lot)


1. Par cook noodles (about 5 min). Drain, but do not rinse.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

3. Mix all cheeses and egg in a bowl.

4. Stuff noodles and place in a 9x13 pan.

5. Cover with sauce and bake for 1 hour (45 min covered and 15 min covered). Let sit about 5 minutes before serving.
