Preparation

  • Cook the pasta shells for 5 minutes in salted boiling water, until they are soft but not fully cooked.

  • Use this recipe to make the B├ęchamel sauce.
    Meanwhile, lightly toss together all the ingredients for the stuffing.
    Be careful to not break the crab lumps.
    Stuff the manicotti shells with the crab mixture and arrange on a greased baking dish.
  • Pour the sauce over the shells covering all of them generously.
