Manicotti Or Jumbo Shells

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?

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.

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.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam,  I second everything that Cyclinglady has told you, but just to let you know that I be me intolerant to dairy before my diagnosis for coeliac disease. The 2npositive tests, were they both blood tests or one blood test and one endoscopy? If you are waiting to see them in the Endocsopy department, I think they will want to do one if you haven't had one already and in order to do this and get the correct result, you must eat gluten for at least 6 weeks before you can have the test done, because it is the gluten that causes the auto-immune result.  I too have a thyroid disorder, which was diagnosed long before I had been diagnosed with coeliacs disease. Also a couple of years after diagnosis I became intolerant to soya and xanthan gum and E464 (hydroxypropl methyl cellulose) which is quite often found in gluten free baking produce, including bread. A food diary is a good start, which has also been suggested, but don't jump the gun if you haven't had an endoscopy with biopsies yet. It is still possible to carry on with gluten free and dairy free diet if you are vegetarian, but it makes it a little harder and don't forget dairy free milk is usually fortified with vitamins and minerals.
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
