Mexican Manicotti - Recipe


Quick, easy and very tasty.
This recipe is one that you can make the night before, then simply pop in the oven the next night and have a wonderful meal.
I omit the water and cook the shells until they are slightly soft when I am not going to place it in the refrigerator overnight.
