Health Benefits 

Whole grains are a healthy staple of a diet. Wheat effectively aids in keeping a healthy weight.  Since wheat is rich in dietary fibers doctors recommend regular consumption. These fibers improve your overall metabolism, as well as aid in the digestive process altogether. Keeping you right on schedule and running smooth.  The insoluble fiber reduces the amount of bile acid secretions in your intestines, which ultimately reduces the risk of gallstones, especially in women.

How to Make Manicotti Shells

  1. Stir milk gradually with flour until smooth.
  2. Add the salted beaten egg while stirring constantly.
  3. Brush a six inch teflon coated fry pan with oil or butter for each shell or crepe.
  4. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter in the bottom of pan, tilting back and forth so it spreads evenly.
  5. Cook slowly until just set.

Note: Do not brown.

  1. Turn over and let other side set.
  2. Slide the crepe off the pan and onto the plate to cool slightly.
  3. Repeat until all of the batter is used.
  4. Place 2 tbs of your cheese filling into the center of the crepe/shell.
  5. Bring the sides over so they overlap to hold filling inches.
  6. Arrange side by side in a baking pan with your favorite sauce, topped with shredded cheese.
  7. Bake at 400° F for about 20 minutes.
