Manicotti shells?

Do you cook them first, then fill them? or fill them, then bake them??

Boil them al dente, fill them and then bake. Easy peasy.

I cook them untill they are just slightly soft. Not soft enough to rip though. Then stuff them.

If it doesn't hurt when it whacks you in the forhead, it's too done.

Al dente means it still has a bit of a "bite" to it, just a bit soft, like Jenn said. Ditto the boiling to al dente, stuff, then bake! Mmmm, stuffed shells <3

I make my shells from scratch on the stove so I'd have to say they're cooked?
