Maybe you speak Italian and don't need a translation.
But for those that don't, and do the Master of this Mad-house (me) can help you out.
-Mascarpone is simply Italian cream cheese. It is lighter/thinner than the cream cheese, and it also has a much more mild flavor. Where cream cheese packs a punch, Mascarpone slightly slaps.
-Manicotti is just a GIANT pasta noodle. It looks like penne pasta on steroids.
