There is something about stuffed pasta.
It’s fun to make and fun to eat.
I like shells.
But this time I decided to go with manicotti.
I know cheese is usually used for stuffing and also for finishing the dish.
But my manicotti was stuffed with delicious garlicky potatoes, broccoli, and mushrooms.
I like to cook them until the pasta gets slightly brown and crunchy.
They were finished with basil cream.
Served with tomato sauce.
As you can see, I cut the pasta in half so that they stand nicely and look nice.
Or you can place them like these too.
I loved them so much.
The combination of tomato and basil is nothing new, but when presented and matched with other interesting items like this one, the dish becomes pretty awesome.
