This video tutorial on how to make authentic baked manicotti is the most comprehensive and authentic that I have come across. The instructions are simple, and the results are phenomenal. Plus, it’s really easy to follow. I tend to get a little lost when following a written recipe! Manicotti is one of my favorite Italian dishes but getting it to turn out correctly is a challenge. Even half the time when I order it out the consistency is off. You can’t have the consistency off!
Well, this is not the case with this recipe – they turned out perfectly. In fact, it was so good that I decided to serve this to our dinner guests the next week! I wasn’t surprised when they practically lined up and begged for the recipe – after they had licked their plates clean, of course! I’m sure this one will be on our list of Top 5 pasta meals for a long time! Let us know how yours turns out, in the comments below.
Oh, and if you have a recipe to share, please do! I am always looking for fun, new pasta recipes to try.
You’re going to love making this manicotti with Diana DeLaFuente. She’s very easy to understand as she explains the instructions very well. I made this manicotti the other night for supper, and it turned out awesome! Thanks, Diana! If you’re able, prop your laptop, smartphone, or tablet up in your kitchen and easily follow Diana’s instructions in real-time as you cook. I found this to be the easiest way to make this authentic manicotti recipe. If this is how Italians eat all of the time, then I’d like to sign up to be an Italian, please.
See what my pal Annie from Allrecipes has to say about this manicotti:
“Delicious! Serve with a crispy salad and garlic bread, and you’ll have a dish your family will love! The kids like to help stuff the noodles too!”
Salad goes awesome with this pasta dish!
