    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    This is a WONDERFUL recipe for manicotti. Conagra Foods makes both Angela Mia and Hunts, so Angela Mia would also be alright to use if you do not see Hunts. If you have questions email me: AlanLeonetti@q.com

    Units: US | Metric

    Ingredients

    Marinara Sauce (use 2 cups)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Empty Hunts chunky crushed tomatoes and Hunts tomato paste into the pot. Add the extra-virgin olive oil to the pot. Slice the cloves of garlic crosswise into either halves or thirds or pieces, and dump them into the pot. Dice the shallot, and dump that into the pot. Add the rest of the ingredients, and stir to mix well with a large long handled wooden spoon. Do not strain, as the pulp adds to make this a thick and wonderful sauce.
    2. 2
      Cover and cook on medium heat, stirring every 10 minutes for about an hour or until it bubbles and is completely heated throughout. Reduce heat to simmer, and continue to simmer, stirring every 10 or 15 minutes to keep from burning or sticking to the bottom of the pot for 1 or 2 hours. Remove from heat and give it one last stir.
    3. 3
      Serve over spaghetti, ravioli, pasta or use for chicken parmesan, veal parmesan, or anything that calls for a marinara sauce. NOTE: Use only Hunts Chunky Crushed Tomatoes and Hunts Tomato Paste.

      This is darn close to the recipe that I've used for years. The only thing I do differentpy is add an egg to the mixture of cheeses.

      Found it very unflavorful. I'm going to try to add more parmesan and assagio cheeses, since they add a lot of flavor.
