Look great, the only way I can see to improve it is to used the smoker.

I love Manicotti and I love Giada. Great post. I usually will make stuffed shells. I find them easier to fill. I did manicotti before and tore up half the tubes. I'm better with shells. I always thought the cannelloni had straight ends and the manicotti had angled ends and ribs (regate').

Speaking of delicious. I saw this motivational poster for Italian food.

Great looking dish Tas.  I love stuffed pasta and I know the debate rages on about what they call it. I have only seen the crepe version in old school Italian restaurants.  I like Giada's recipes a lot as they are usually very straight forward and easy to teach our 4H kids

You are correct Alelover. Canneloni is smooth and has square ends. Mannicotti (regate') has angled ends. Rigate' means ridges in Italian. I work in a pasta plant where these things are made.

hey, everyone - many thanks for the comments and praise. this was some good stuff ~ in fact, i'm thinking of having it again very soon, perhaps with some sort of shrimp stuffing rather than beef - and cheddar cheese with bechemel sauce rather than mozzerella and tomato sauce ~ i got to thinking, this is simply an italian version of enchiladas, and as such can be very versatile!
