Manicotti Or Jumbo Shells
0

16 posts in this topic

I feel there are so many things I can duplicate gluten free (pizza, spagetti, cookies, etc.), but I'm craving stuffed manicotti or jumbo shells like nothing else. Do you think there is anyway to convice Tinkyada to manufacture one or both of these items?

Anyone know of a subsitute?

Tinkyada makes jumbo shells! I saw them at a specialty gluten-free store I go to.

Yes, according to their website, they do make large shells, and their recipe page shows them stuffed.

I've gotten the Tinkyada jumbo shells (and lasagna noodles) many times. I either get them at Whole Foods or Mrs. Greens.

Send them to me, and I will figure somthing out:D

But I bet its not hard to figure out. I would probably use Ricotta chesee to stuff, some sauce and tose in the oven till done. :)

This is a recipe off of Barilla's site for cheese and spinach stuffed shells. It looks pretty good.

1/2 box BARILLA Jumbo Shells (approx. 20)

1 tbsp.extra virgin olive oil

2 bacon slices, chopped

1 cup chopped onion

1 (10 oz.) bag fresh baby spinach, trimmed

3 cups ricotta cheese

1/2 tsp.salt

1/8 tsp.freshly ground black pepper

1 (26 oz.) jar BARILLA Italian Baking Sauce

1/3 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

PREHEAT oven to 350ºF.

COOK Jumbo Shells according to package directions; drain. Cover and set aside.

HEAT oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and onion; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Remove from heat; stir in ricotta cheese, salt and pepper.

RESERVE 1 cup of Italian Baking Sauce; pour remainder into 13x9-inch baking dish. Fill shells with spinach mixture; place in dish. Pour remaining Sauce over Jumbo Shells; cover with foil.

BAKE for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with Parmigiano cheese; broil 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned.

Tip: Add 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg with seasonings.

My grandmother's meat stuffing for stuffed shells:

Saute chopped onion and minced garlic until soft, add 1 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb sweet Italian sausage and cook until browned. Season with basil and oregano and salt. Drain off the fat.

Add: 8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 bread crumbs (either gluten-free or skip it)

1c spaghetti sauce, your favorite

Mix well, fill the cooked shells. Cover the bottom of a large baking pan with sauce and lay the shells on top of the sauce. Cover with more sauce, sprinkle with grated parmesan, bake at 350 for 40 minutes. This fills a lot of shells. Eat some, freeze the rest. This usually takes a 32oz jar of sauce.

Cheese filling, probably not much different from what's already posted:

2lb ricotta cheese

1/2lb shredded mozzarella

1/2c parmesan

2 eggs

parsley

salt and pepper

Stuff shells and bake as above. Mmmmmmmm. Now I've made myself crave these. I'll have to go find a store in my area that sells Tinkyada shells or roll this up in their lasagna.

I make something similar in flavor, but without the difficulty of rolling:

I mix the meat sauce with gluten-free elbows (Tinkyada) and then layer it in a 9x13 pan with a 15-oz container of ricotta mixed with 1/2 cup parmesan, 2 eggs, pepper, and parsley (the parmesan is so salty, I skip the salt). Top with mozzarella and parmesan and bake!

Same flavor as the stuffed shells and/or lasagna , but a bit easier.

now this begs the question, which ricotta's are gluten-free - are mostly all gluten-free?

I have purchased the Jumbo shells from Tinkyada and made cheese stuffed shells. They were so good. I even passed them off to my gluten-consuming coworkers who really didn't know the difference. I stocked up over the weekend on Tinkyada pasta, Wegmans had a sale on it. Much cheapier than what I have to pay in my gluten-free stores. A bag of penne was 2.15!!!

I was wondering the same thing. Which ricotta is gluten free? I guess maybe all, but I saw that at least one had vinegar. It didn't say distilled vinegar. Does anybody know?

A quick Google revealed Crystal Farms ricotta is gluten-free. Also in this post it lists Saputo, and Bari & Stella Whey Ricotta cheeses are gluten-free. I'm certain a number of others are also.
