Passed down from my wife's grandmother, here is a little italian dish that although has a light and fluffy pasta, can fullfill the biggest appetite.
Combine the following ingredients in a large bowl
3 lbs. Riccotta cheese
1/4 cup Locattelli Grated Cheese ( THE BEST GRATED CHEESE)
Fresh or dried parsley (Preferred fresh)
16 oz. Cubed Mozzarella
Salt and Pepper to taste
Whisk the following ingredients together in a large bowl
3 cups Flour
3 cups Milk
Preheat a 10 non stick frying pan. Use a ladle to pour a pancake size amount into pan. Smooth batter out with the ladle to a thin, crepe like disc. Allow the batter to cook from 30-45 secs. until it looks dry.
Take shell out of pan and lay flat on a dish. Spoon in 2-3 tablespoons of filling across entire center of shell. Roll shell and place in baking dish with sauce on bottom. Fill entire pan with manicotti and top with sauce. (Hopefully you have made your OWN homemade sauce for this tasty dish).
Allow to cook for approx. 35 mins at 350 degrees until sauce is bubbling.
Let them stand for approx. 5 mins before serving.
Try different fillings with your shells. Mushrooms, Spinache etc.

"Andrew was great with us from the first day we met. We came from northern Bergen County on a Friday and hit a lot of traffic. He made himself accessible and waited for us. He was kind and friendly and made us feel comfortable from the first day of our search. He knew what we were looking for and wasn't pushy. He is extremely knowledgeable, especially with searches in the Beach Haven West area. He' was always working hard for us. We are extremely pleased and grateful that we worked with Andrew Gonzales in purchasing our shore home in LBI. We are very excited and owe a lot to Andrew for all his hard work. He isn't just a realtor. We consider him a friend."
