On my way home from work I was trying to think of something that I could make that was easy but delcious. Since I was craving Italian at the time, I immediately thought of Manicotti! These cheese stuffed noodles are no fuss and are great for left overs. Here is my recipe for a no boil manicotti that you can whip up in 15 minutes and throw in the oven.
