[Comments] (4) Toobs: I didn't make it in to work because I almost fell down every time I stood up. I think I'm shaky from loss of blood. (We're not going to talk about the blood, but it did wash out of my down pillow--eventually.) So I slept most of the day, in the morning in Rachel's bed while Irma was here, and in my bed in the afternoon.

I heard somewhere that you can make lasagna and manicotti without cooking the noodles first, so I tried it with a batch of manicotti. The funny thing about the tubes is the stuffing would pour out of one end while I was stuffing the other end. I learned to cup the tube in my left hand and spoon filling with my right. I baked it for an hour and it turned out perfect. I got one little batch for us to eat now and two other batches to heat up sometime later from one box of manicotti noodles.

There is one lonely tube left, and I don't know what to do with it.

I have never cooked lasagna any other way either. The less work I have to do, the better.

Are these the special kind of noodle that doesn't require pre-cooking? Or just the old regular.

Funny, I always have too many noodles when I make lasagne or manicotti. I have boxes floating around my cupboards that hold only one or two noodles. Better than not having enough, I guess.

Manicotti sounds really good right now.
