You can opt to use a cheese that is flavored with dill, oregano or an Italian blend of flavorings.


  • Manicotti shells
  • Fresh goat cheese (chevre, vinegar cheese)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • A good red sauce, marinara, garlic, or other sauce of your choice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix mozzarella cheese, soft cheese, and egg together in a bowl.
  • In a 9 x 13 inch pan, pour a small layer of sauce in the bottom, fill each manicotti noodle with cheese mixture, and lay them in the pan.
  • Pour sauce over the entire set of manicotti noodles, cover and bake at 350°F until shells begin to soften well.
  • Uncover and add more cheese to the top and bake until it melts well.
  • Serve hot with a good crispy salad and fresh bread.

* Tip: Making the sauce with a bit more liquid than usual really helps the noodles soften well.

“Delicious! and you will have a dish your family will love! The kids like to help stuff the noodles too!”
