Marilyn's Manicotti

Submitted by MartiniMar

 

Approx. 30 shells

Shells - 6 eggs              
                  1 1/4 cup milk
                  1 1/2 cup flour 
                  1 tsp. salt

Beat eggs until fluffy.  Add milk, then flour & salt. (Add flour and salt slowly to avoid lumps).  Make pan hot & brush with oil.  I use small Teflon frying pan.  Put 1 to 2 tsp. batter and spread thin.  Do not brown.  Turn to just cook the other side.  (Like crepe shells).  Shells may be prepared before & refrigerated or frozen.

Ricotta Filling - 1 lbs. ricotta to each 1 recipe of manicotti
                             1 egg to each lb. of ricotta
                             1 tsp. romano cheese to each lb. of ricotta
                              Parsley, Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder to taste
                             Mozzarella (1/2 lb. to each lb. of ricotta)

Mix all ingredients.  Fill shell generously.  Put some sauce (Red Gravy) in bottom of pan and cover the manicotti with a layer of sauce.  Sprinkle with romano cheese.  Cover with foil and bake 350 degrees for 1/2 hour or until bubbly and they expand.
