One thought on “Spinach-Stuffed Manicotti with Mushrooms

  1. This is what I prepared for our Christmas dinner, in preparing this dish, I noticed a couple of things that I think you should be aware of. This recipe calls for onions however, in preparing this dish, I could not find where the onions go! Alas, I just put them in at the end with the mushrooms!  I think other herbs and spices could be added like oregano. Yum, this is a great dish to have for any dinner!
