My 13 year olds favorite and she insists on making it herself. She like using giant shells in replacement of the manicotti as it is easier to stuff them.
- 1 (8 ounce) package manicotti, uncooked
- 1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese or 1 (15 ounce) container cottage cheese
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1⁄2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 cups spaghetti sauce
- Prepare pasta as directed on package; drain. Rinse with cold water, drain and arrange in single layer to fill.
- Meanwhile, mix ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese the egg, parsley, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
- Spoon mixture into manicotti shells, using at least 1/3 cup per shell. Place filled manicotti shells in a single layer in greased 13X9 inch baking pan.
- Pour spaghetti sauce over manicotti shells.
- Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until hot.
AMAZING! This was easy and delicious!!!
WTG Deb! I made this last night, and it was wonderful! Even hubby, who is a diehard southern meat and potatoes kinda guy, asked me several times, "what was that called again? That was really good!" I will be making this again!
