The endless debate continues: manicotti or stuffed shells?
The difference seems nearly non-existent - it's just a matter of pasta shape for heaven's sakes - but there are some people (like my husband) who stand firmly on one side of the line. And that side is, of course, the manicotti side.

Manicotti noodles are long and cylindrical - think more like tubes than shells.
Stuffed shells are obviously more of a shell shape which makes them, in my opinion, perfect for overflowing with ricotta cheese and basil.
My stance is in the middle, with a slight preference for shells, but as long as there is a lot of ricotta I couldn't care less!
