We are big-time Italian food fans here, so I put together a pasta-lover’s dream dish in the form of Stuffed Manicotti the other night for dinner. Combined with the very best homemade marinara sauce, it was a huge hit with the family! Even my three little picky eaters gobbled it right up!
It’s not very often at our house that my kids will eat what I make for dinner and actually enjoy it. I’ve said before that they are probably the world’s finickiest eaters. They even turn up their noses to sweets many times! Crazy, I know!
So I’ve learned not to take it offensively when the kiddos sit at the dinner table and pick at their food for an hour. Our rule is that they need to at least try a few bites of what my husband and I are having, and sometimes they end up surprising themselves and eating the whole plateful!
This was one of those wonderful occasions when they actually came looking for more! But how could it be helped when a manicotti that’s stuffed with yummy cheese, doused in perfectly-seasoned homemade tomato marinara sauce, then topped with even more melty cheese is sitting in front of them?
This glorious, delicious recipe will be going on our menu time and time again. I hope your family enjoys this meal as much as we did!
