I found a recipe on Pinterest that I to made for dinner this evening: spinach & ricotta stuffed shells. Except, apparently Price Smart in Fleetwood doesn't carry pasta shells (like in the recipe photo) or anything stuff-able besides manicotti & cannelloni shells. So, manicotti it was! I just doubled the recipe for the stuffing and stuffed it in the other shells which worked totally fine. I added a few red & green peppers to the sauce though for some extra veggies; I also didn't use the chorizo sausage that this recipe called for.
Where it turned out quite well, it's definitely a challenge of your kitchen abilities to be able to cook the manicotti shells to the right softness/hardness! I think I did it well in the end, but there were a few I had to throw out because they were super al dente in some spots. Not sure how that worked but oh well! I still had tons of shells leftover to stuff. Lots of variations you could do on this dish too - add ground beef, add other veggies...
