Stuffed Manicotti


Stuffed Manicotti

I really don’t make this enough.  A simple dish with tons of flavor.  Use fresh parsley in your cheese mixture for the best results.

Ingredients:

4 cups  Ricotta cheese

½ cup  Parmesan cheese, grated

3 cups  Mozzarella cheese, shredded (reserve 2 cups for topping)

1          Egg

1/2 cups           Spinach, chopped

1/2 cup            Parsley, chopped

16        Manacotti pasta

1 jar     Pasta sauce

Directions:

Cook manicotti pasta until andante.  Remove from the water and let cool.  Preheat oven to 375.  Mix ricotta, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg, spinach, and parsley together.  Place the mixture into a piping bag.  Fill each manicotti with the cheese mixture.  Place manicotti in a baking dish that has a little pasta sauce in the bottom.  Cover the manicotti with the pasta sauce and top with mozzarella cheese.  Cook until the cheese starts to brown.  Let manicotti rest before serving.
