I would be honored if you all took the time to let me know if you prefer Manicotti or Lasagna!

I made both of them a few days ago for my husband’s birthday, and my family and I took a poll on which one was our favorite. I have cooked both of these a 100 times. At least that’s the way it feels. Needless to say, I get bored, so I have to figure out new ways to bring these meals back to life.
My husband absolutely loves Italian food, and well, me… not so much. I can take it or leave it.
So when he requested this,
I thought, “crap, here we go”.
I wanted to demand for him to choose something different. BUT it was his birthday, so I kept my mouth shut and searched for new ways to prep the two dishes.
If I cook something more than 4 times, I get bored. After the 4th time, I’m ready to kick that meal to the curb, unless it’s soup. Y’all know how much I love soup.
And so It Began
I reluctantly went into the kitchen, slowly opened the refrigerator door, and began looking at all the items sitting peacefully on the shelves. I saw that I had bacon, ricotta cheese, and a garden full of goodies in the back yard. And just like that I felt inspired to whip this dinner up with a new twist!
As I began making my dishes, I thought it would be fun to ask everyone which they prefer. After you watch my video come back and please let me know your answer.
