Sometimes ya just know when something is going to work.  This was one of those times.

I made a goodly amount of ragu last night knowing I wanted to make manicotti this week.  This week ended up being tonight.

I took about 2 cups of the ragu and added about 3/4 cup ricotta and 1 egg and mixed it well.

I cooked the manicotti noodles and then stuffed them using a pastry bag.  For grins and giggles, I put a small mozzarella ball into the middle of each one and filled from both ends.

I made a light white sauce with parmesan cheese and used it for the sauce. (2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp flour, 2 cups milk, pinch salt, pinch pepper, maybe an ounce of grated parmesan.)

The manicotti went into a buttered casserole with a little sauce on the bottom and more on top, covered with foil, and baked at 350° for about 40 minutes.

Garlic bread and peas finished it off.

It was another plate-licker.
