Anyway, we loved this one. It takes a little bit longer to cook than most recipes like this, but it was really good. I sometimes get a craving for Stove Top, for some reason, and this really hit the spot. The gravy on it is yummy too, even though it's just broth and cream of mushroom. The kids ate it up. I did have to use manicotti noodles, since the store didn't have the jumbo ones. I hate stuffing manicotti noodles, but I really think I like the way they taste in this more than the jumbo shells. I didn't have enough time to put it all together tonight, so I mixed up the stuffing and stuffed the shells last night. I also mixed the soup and broth but left them in another container. I threw both in the fridge until I got ready to cook them tonight. It still only took an hour to cook. I'll definitely do it that way again next time, since it cuts down on the overall time in the evenings.
