When I decided that it was time for me to have a domain (before they were all taken ;-) and a website, I needed a name. I thought about the name for far too long. I really wanted a short name that I could identify with, but so many of the short names are already registered.
My grandmother was a great Italian cook. The first thing of hers that I remember learning to cook was manicotti. I can make about 40 an hour once the ingredients are mixed. I also make a bunch of other things that she taught me, but manicotti came first so this is the site.
