Crabby Manicotti

These Crabby Manicotti are another dinner straight from my pantry and fridge. I always have cans of crab, tuna and salmon on hand as well as every type of pasta imaginable. I also stock up on cream cheese, ricotta or cottage whenever they go on sale since they last a while in the fridge. Tonight, I stuffed Manicotti shells with a mixture of crabmeat and cream cheese and it was simply amazing!


6 oz cream cheese
1 c whole milk
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (6 oz) can crabmeat
1/4 c shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 c bread crumbs
8 Manicotti shells, cooked as directed


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a baking dish.

2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, mix together cream cheese, milk, dill and lemon pepper. Heat until cream cheese is melted. Remove from heat and stir in mozzarella and crabmeat.

3. Stuff 2 tablespoons of filling into each Manicotti shell. Place shells in baking dish. Spoon remaining fiilling mixture over shells and top with Parmesan and breadcrumbs.

4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until top is golden and cheese is bubbly. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
