  • I checked the nutrition content. The manicotti noodles were omitted in the ingredients for the nutrition calculation. Egg substitute was used instead of a whole egg. The calorie count is understated by about 180 calories per serving. Actual calories per serving is more like 340 depending on sauce - 4/21/12

  • I used fresh swiss chard instead of spinach & added shredded carrots. It was good, but I'd need to tweal it if I make it again. - 2/4/08
