Hey! An actual vegetarian recipe from yoyomax12! My meat loving family didn’t miss it at all and thoroughly enjoyed this. I will be making this part of my “regular” dinner repertoire. I have 108 dinner/appetizer/casserole recipes in a playlist if you are looking for more :) Found the recipe here: This makes 10-12 manicotti depending on size. Manicotti wrappers (or crepes) 3 large eggs 1.5 cups cold water 1.5 tablespoons oil (I used olive oil) 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (or regular salt) 1.5 cups all-purpose flour Filling: 1.5 lbs ricotta cheese 2 cups shredded low-moisture mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup grated cheese, can use either romano or 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (I used a cheese combo) 1/2 cup of frozen spinach chopped up (measurement taken after defrosting and squeezing out as much as the water as possible) 3-4 cups of your favorite tomato or pasta sauce Combine the ricotta cheese,spinach, the romano or parmesan cheese and 3/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese and stir until combined. Set aside. Whisk the eggs, water, oil, salt and flour together to make a smooth, but very liquidity batter. Should be the consistency of a creamy soup (not pancake batter) Heat a 8″ non stick skillet on med/high heat. I lightly grease the skilled by wiping it down with a paper towel dampened with olive oil. When hot pour 1/4 cup of the crepe batter into the skillet and tilt skillet to spread batter evenly on bottom of skillet to make an 8″ or so in diameter circle. Cook until the crepe

    Can a person use packaged shredded cheese, like cheddar?

  4. Alaxxe says:

    Actually, it is. Gouda is pronounced with a hard g, which is very difficult for many non-dutch people, and the ou indeed sounds like the ou in ouch (or sound), but it’s a little sharper sounding.

  23. yoyomax12 says:

    @Santaarnpaal Oh my! I had no idea. Thank you for the proper pronunciation. :)

  24. yoyomax12 says:

    @Santaarnpaal I say Goo-dah, not Koo-dah in this video. A hard “G” as in “Go away”.
    I will keep that in mind if I am cheese shopping overseas.

  25. Jolie Hannah says:

    @yoyomax12…I was wondering if I could use Alfredo sauce on top of it instead of spaghetti sauce?

    You could easily make these ahead and refrigerate them, just make sure you store them in a covered container.

  37. Brokenache says:
