These is no doubt that fresh pasta is delicious, but it’s also a time consuming process and to produce a large quantity (I always seem to make large quantities of everything, after all I’m Italian!) takes a long time! So I opt for the pasta in the box for this recipe. I can tell you that if you follow this recipe you will not be disappointed, and your guests will be impressed and leave full! Anyone who visits us for the holiday knows to come hungry. Try my Homemade Manicotti. It is delicious and the entire process takes a little over one hour. Mange!
