Spinach Cheese Manicotti

on 2012 March 1

Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce container ricotta cheese
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 26-ounce jars spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water (if needed; I don’t usually)
  • 1 8-ounce package manicotti shells

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, combine ricotta, spinach, and egg.  Season with parsley, pepper and garlic powder. Mix in 1 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan.  In a separate bowl, stir together spaghetti sauce and water.

Spread 1 cup sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.  Stuff uncooked manicotti shells with ricotta mixture, and arrange in a single layer in the dish.  Cover with remaining sauce.  Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until noodles are soft.
