Parmesan Chicken Manicotti

Do you like Italian food? I LOVE Italian food although now that I think about it we hardly go out to eat for Italian. I’m not really sure why that is. I think it’s because it tastes so good at restaurants that I assume it has a gazillion calories and I feel too guilty eating it. Weird excuse, I know, but I think it’s the case. LOL. Even though we don’t eat out for Italian often, we still make it at home a ton. Over the years many of our favorite Sunday dishes have been Italian recipes, in fact. So good, right?

This next recipe I will be sharing today is one that I asked my mom to try out for our Weekly Dinners. She was happy to. I was happy that it turned out super well and that everyone liked it.

    Oh, man that looks good. This would be a tough sell in our house though, since my wife’s chicken parm is the standard by which all others are judged!
