the boxed manicotti itself was hard & UNCOOKED prior to the finished baking.
The taste was very good. In fact, I thought it was home-made pasta crepes. When I found out it was uncooked boxed dry manicotti, you could have blown me over with a pastry bag,
The only variation: layer a cup of sauce + 1 cup of water at the bottom of the dish, fill the HARD manicotti with the cheese filling (making life So. Much. Easier than trying to fill a soft, limp tube), then layer them with more sauce & cheese (but no more water).
Out of 14 pasta dishes, this one won!
