String Cheese Manicotti

by Laura

I have a fun recipe for you today that will help you make manicotti in a snap. The main thing that makes it so easy to make is string cheese. It’s string cheese manicotti.

Usually you stuff those pasta shells with a ricotta cheese mixture. This can be messy and time consuming to do. Now enter the string cheese!

Instead of using that messy ricotta mixture, you just slide a string cheese into each manicotti shell. Pretty genius, huh? No more mess. As a result, it takes about 1 second to fill each pasta shell. String cheese – manicotti made easy!
