String Cheese Manicotti | Melanie Makes
My String Cheese Manicotti is hands down the easiest way to fill manicotti! Two pieces of string cheese are stuffed into each pasta tube before being covered with a meaty marinara sauce. It’s all then covered in another blanket of mozzarella cheese and baked until bubbly. A garnish of chopped parsley and a shower of Parmesan cheese makes this an absolute pasta and cheese lover’s delight!
