But first, I have to tell you, the recipe is still in the works. All because I was in a hurry at the grocery store. When it says smoked mozzarella, read the ingredients. If the ingredients consist of something, something, something, smoke flavor, put it down and walk away (It may as well say "something, something, something, dark side"). I am here to tell you that smoke-flavored "smoked mozzarella" will only make you unhappy. And will make all your other cheese taste like fake smoke.
Got that, boys and girls? No rushing through the cheese aisle.
Inferior cheese rant complete. Now on to the photos...

|Not quite as pretty as the glamour shot, but this is what the manicotti actually looks like before you will chow down.|
