Crab and Cheese Stuffed Manicotti

I found this recipe in a healthy cooking magazine. I changed it up a wee bit. If you like the flavors of pasta, crab and cheeses combined, this recipe is for you.
  • 6 manicotti shells, cooked
  • 2 cans (120 g size each) of crabmeat, drained
  • 1/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Parsley, fresh or dried, used for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 teaspoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese, grated
  1. In a saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour until smooth, add milk and pepper, cook and stir until thickened. 
  2. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together crabmeat, ricotta cheese, mozzarella, lemon pepper, and garlic powder.
  4. Fill cooked manicotti shells with this mixture.
  5. Spoon 1/4 cup of sauce in an 8" x 8" greased pan and top with stuffed manicotti.
  6. Pour remaining sauce over top and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.


  1. We love stuffed pasta and this sounds delicious. Also the sauce sounds fast, easy and tasty. I may try this in stuffed shells since I have some on hand. Cant' wait to try it!

  2. It looks delicious. I would change the crab to salmon or shrimp as we're crab allergic in the family. Thanks for the dinner idea. :)
