Hi. This is Rich Buccola here in New York City and today on behalf of Expert Village,
I'm going to show you today how to make manicotti. Okay, we're still mixing up our mix. But we
still got to add a couple more ingredients. But I like to mix it first to get that egg
all through. Look at how nice now it looks. You see the egg is evenly mixed through. Everything
is mixed through evenly. The cheese, the cheese is. Okay, we're going to take our manicotti
and just flip it once so it cools evenly and it doesn't stick to each other. Believe it
or not it could do that. So just flip them over. Okay, we're just going to flip them
all over. They're actually cooling very nice. They're not sticking. See you don't want that
to happen where they stick together. Just give it a good flip. And these are coming
out real nice. This is going to be a nice easy meal for you guys. But you know what?
It's going to look like you had a lot of slaving and sweating in the kitchen. Alright, last
but not least, you're going to add about a quarter cup to half a cup of Parmesan cheese
and I mean a little hint of nutmeg. Nutmeg is very strong, so you're only going to put
about an eighth of a teaspoon. And I do it by eye. So we're looking for about a quarter
to a half a cup. That's about a good punch or a good handful. A little bit more. And
then our nutmeg, I'm, I'm. You got to watch it. Nutmeg, it's very, very strong. Just going
to go about that much. Eighth of a teaspoon. And just do like this and make sure we get
it all in there. And again we're going to mix by folding, from the bottom up. So just
keep folding this. We're almost ready to start stuffing our filling into our manicotti pasta.
Getting it all ready. It's going to be pretty quick now. Once they're filled, we're going
to just put them in a tray with some sauce on top. We're going to add a little bit more
of mozzarella cheese and a little bit of Parmesan cheese and get them in the oven at three-fifty.
This is a good time where you might want to pre heat your oven to three-fifty.
