Manicotti, which means, “little muffs” in Italian, has to be
one of the best ways ever for using up leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
filling will bring the driest bird back from the dead, and you can literally
add anything that can be chopped up.
Leftover green bean casserole? Throw it in. Peas and
Onions? You bet’cha. Cranberry Sauce? No, don’t be ridiculous. Anyway, thanks
to the absence of cheese, tomato, and pasta on the usual Thanksgiving menu,
this concoction will erase any connection with the aforementioned feast.
if you make yours slightly smaller, the filling recipe will make six nicely
I went low-carb and used all the filling to make four
portions, but you should probably just fill all 6 crepes, or even double the
recipe to get 12. I think you’ll want leftovers of the leftovers. So whether you make manicotti with the last of the holiday
turkey, or just use the technique to recycle other meaty meals, I hope you give
this a try soon. Enjoy!
