* Slightly undercook manicotti shells when preparing for freezer. This will make it easier to fill them and prevent overcooking when reheated. **A plastic bag with a corner cut off is a great tool for filling manicotti shells quickly.
***Most manicotti shells are stored in individual, lightweight plastic trays. After stuffing the shells, place them back into the trays, lightly sprayed with non-stick spray. Wrap thoroughly with plastic wrap, then place trays in freezer bag.
