Manicotti was a food that I never grew up with or had even heard of until I married an Italian guy and he dragged me from my Georgia southern roots to a far away state called Connecticut! I soon learned there were other foods besides fried chicken, black-eyed peas, and okra! I have to admit, that it took me years to warm up to these very different type foods. I often shook my head “no” more often than “yes” in the beginning… but eventually I warmed up to tasting them when offered. Every holiday held a new surprise of foods for me, and over time… for the most part, they are now my favorites too!
