2 1/2 pounds medium Shrimp, peeled and deveined
Salted Water to boil noodles
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 box Manicotti noddles
1 pound Mozzarella Cheese, cubed
1 pound Colby Cheese, cubed
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Panko Italian Breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons Garlic, minced and lightly sauteed
1 tablespoon fresh Parsley, chopped
Creole Seasoning to taste
16 ounces of your favorite Pasta Sauce (It can be white or red)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Heat water and oil to a boil in a large pot. Drop noodles into boiling water one at a time. Boil until done, drain, and rinse well. Mix together the remaining ingredients, except the pasta sauce, and carefully stuff into the noodles. Place the noodles in a single layer in a glass baking dish and cover with pasta sauce. Cover and bake for 35-40 minutes.
