Use Lasagna Sheets to Make Easier Manicotti
Manicotti tubes can be difficult to fill, but with lasagna sheets, this delicious stuffed pasta has never been simpler!
Lasagna pasta sheets are the way to go for manicotti. They're easier to use than traditional tubes, are less likely to tear, and they have a better texture — just make sure to get the kind without curly edges.
To boil the lasagna sheets, crisscross them in the water so they aren't as likely to fuse together. Drain and rinse them in cold water, then separate them to prevent sticking. Draping them over the edge of a colander works great, or you can lay them out on a cooling rack. Don't worry too much if they stick together — if that happens, just rinse them again!
