Valentine's Day Manicotti
Reaching for our "Cooking for Two" cookbook on Valentine's Day seemed like an appropriate place to start for this week's meal. I was looking for something that felt a little romantic, and that always seems to take me to the Italian section of any cookbook. While searching, I found a little twist on manicotti, and thought it might be a great option. While we've both eaten manicotti before, I have never taken the time to make it myself.
This specific recipe called for rolling the filling inside flat lasagna noodles, instead of stuffing the pasta tubes. It was a much simpler way to assemble the dish, and came out pretty good! Like some previous dishes, I think we were both wanting a little more flavor, but now we know for next time!
