An excellent manicotti!

Recipe Directions

Manitcotti is usually made with a ricotta filling but I used cashews. For the macaroni shell, I sliced an eggplant very thinly using a mandoline. I made a really quick, unfancy sauce. Un-raw manicotti isn’t served with macaroni but I felt like I was lacking something. I have a ton of zucchini and squash so I added that.

“Ricotta” (1 serving)

1 cup raw cashews (I didn’t soak mine but next time I will try that)

4 sun dried tomatoes, chopped

juice of 1 small lemon (I used half of a huge lemon)

few leaves of basil

dash salt

Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender. I had to play around with the consisteny a little by adding extra virgin olive oil.

Red Sauce

1 roma tomato

3 sun dried tomatoes, chopped

handful of basil

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse. Enjoy!

I am still new at this, a whole week now. But I have made this 3 times already. it is phenominal. I do soak the cashews, as I have trouble with nuts still, but it is very good. I also add some pesto sauce, in that I already have my little food processer out, so what's one more thing. especillay in that you don't have to rinse it out as they have similar ingrediants. anyway, great recipe.
