@ Polished Topaz: Stunning Manicotti

Good Morning,

What a gorgeous recipe ...

There is only 1 little mistake; the word Manicotti is spelt with an " i " ... M A N I C O T T I ...

I would love the recipe ... Could you kindly post on this thread when you have some free time to do so ...

Grazie, Ciao.
Gratefully appreciate it in advance.
Margi Cintrano.
One other thing,

@ Polished Topaz,

Grazie ... Many thanks for posting this lovely Manicotti Recipe ... Shall give it a try next week ... Saturdays are Pasta Day at our Loft ...

I like the lemon zest, rosemary and other herb & spices in addition to the Gorgonzola ingredients ... I can see this as a lovely lunch ...

Since we are on the Iberian Peninsula at moment, I believe I am going to use trompetas, a unique trumphet shaped black mushroom variety verses Italian mushrooms ... The trumphets shall be wild and fresh, verses the jarring business, which I am not too fond of.


Have a nice wkend and many thanks once again. Margi. Cintrano.
