Make Individual Manicotti with this old barilla manicotti recipe. It’s an easy three cheese manicotti covered with a store bought spaghetti sauce with extra spices and more cheese.
I believe I have mentioned before my love of Italian dishes and rich pasta and this three-cheese manicotti is my absolute favorite. This recipe for Individual Manicotti would be perfect to make for a romantic dinner at home. We serve it with an Overloaded Crisp Wedge salad and a loaf of crusty bread paired with a Sangria.
Also, we make things easier by using a store bought jar of spaghetti sauce but we added a few spices and herbs for extra flavor. We also like to make and serve this Three Cheese manicotti in individual baking dishes. We believe it just makes one feel special when everyone has their own little “pan” of cheesy goodness.

Did you know that adding a whole carrot or in this case heating up the red sauce with a carrot removes the acidity of the sauce? So all of you out there that suffer from heartburn from eating an Italian sauce, try this little trick next time. You will be surprised at how well it works. And you can just remove the carrot prior to assembling the Three Cheese Manicotti.
So enjoy your romantic celebrations or even just a weeknight dinner with this barilla manicotti recipe. And trust me it’s just as easy to make and serve these in this individual au gratin baking dishes than a big pan. But if you wish these can also be made in a 9X13 baking dish.
