Homemade Manicotti Italian Stuffed Pasta

Homemade Batter for Manicotti Mom's Recipe


4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup flour
1 cup water

Filling:

2 lbs. Homemade Ricotta cheese or your favorite brand
4 eggs
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup grated cheese
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese  1 cup extra for topping
Mix together set aside till shells are done.

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, add salt water and blend together. Add flour mix till smooth. Will be a thin batter.
Cook in a heated sprayed pan, as you would pancake in a non stick 6 to 8 inch pan sprayed each time with non stick spray, in between manicotti pasta. Spread quickly on pan and rotate to coat pan, use spatula to flip, will cook fast and require around a minute on each side.
Remove immediately and stack on wax paper. This make around 30 manicotti's.
Spread each shell with approx. one tablespoon of filling. Roll up. Make sure you only use one layer in a large shallow pan. Top with already made Traditional Sunday Sauce recipe on this website, or use your favorite sauce and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. Cover and bake for 25 minutes at 375 or till bubbly and browned.
