How to make Homemade Manicotti
I do try to make most of what I use from scratch, but there are certain items that are just too good and are too much of a time saver to pass up. Now I’m not saying that I would never make my own fresh pasta sheets, but when you can get really good quality fresh pasta sheets, it’s almost a duh moment not to use them. To be honest with you, I don’t even remember why I originally bought them a few weeks ago, but there they were!
There are certain items I try to always have on hand and ricotta is one of them, so luckily I had everything I needed to make my manicotti. Using the pasta sheets, they were incredibly easy to make, and so much better than even the best homemade I have bought in specialty stores.
So if you haven’t tried making them, you really need to, if you feel so inclined you could make your own ravioli out of the pasta sheets too!
If you’d like to try your hand at making your own marinara sauce this is the recipe I’ve been using for over thirty years. If you make it you’ll never buy premade sauce again.
