Expert Tips

"Julienne" describes food cut into matchstick-sized strips. To julienne the zucchini for this recipe, first cut it into 2-inch lengths. Cut each piece lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices. Stack the slices and cut lengthwise again into 1/4-inch strips.

Give your menu an Italian theme by serving this manicotti with garlic breadsticks and Italian-blend salad greens tossed with creamy Italian dressing. Sprinkle the salad generously with shaved Parmesan cheese.
