    I have to admit this dinner was really great. Paul came up with it on his own from a high calorie high fat recipe he found. He pared it down to a figure friendly delicious dinner. - 9/7/09

    I also used part skim ricotta cheese. Hubby and I both liked them but would probably prefer a red sauce to the alfredo. - 10/5/09

    This was not enough ricotta to fill all 14 manicotti noodles. It only filled 8. Unless I stuffed them too full? I also used the whole jar of marinara. Great recipe! - 10/6/13

    This one didn't go over so well in our house but really can't pinpoint why. - 7/12/10

    Very yummy and easy! Substituted with substitute eggs and light alfredo sauce and skim ricotta was delish boyfriend didn't even notice the substitutions :-) Thanks Paul!!!! - 5/25/10
