Tonight I was going to make stuffed shells, but last night manicotti was on sale. I've never worked with this pasta before. For a filling, can I make the same one I'd use for shells (like ricotta, an egg, and herbs)? Or do I need to make it thicker? Thinner? Any suggestions for a good, tried-and-true stuffed manicotti recipe?
Plus, we're going to the farmers market, so I can get some fresh veggies on the side, so I could put anything in the stuffing, too.
