Olive Garden Manicotti Formaggio With Shrimp

“I received a link to this in response to a recipe request. I haven't had a chance to make it, so I'm posting for safe keeping. Manicotti filled with ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, served with sauteed shrimp tossed with Roma tomatoes and scallions in a carbonara sauce with Parmesan and pancetta bacon. Note: Prep and cook times are estimated since the website did not list them and I have not yet made this recipe.”
