Manicotti is a type of pasta that is of Italian origin. However, the dish is extensively known throughout the world. Manicotti are typically ridged pasta tubes that are intended for stuffing and baking.
In general, the filling is ricotta cheese mixed with cooked chopped spinach and possibly ground meat like veal. The pasta is then topped with béchamel sauce, which is usually made with Pecorino Romano cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, tomato sauce, or some mixture of these.
Manicotti is among the earliest known forms of pasta. It is a substantial, tube-shaped pasta. It was made by preparing the dough in advance and cutting it into rectangles then rolling it into tubes in ancient times.
