Yield: 1 Servings
|1 pack||Manicotti; 8-oz|
|1||Container Ricotta cheese; 15 oz|
|2 cups||Mozzarella cheese; shredded|
|½ can||Parmesan cheese; grated|
|1 tablespoon||Parsley or oregano; chopped|
|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, 1½ cups of the mozzarella cheese, ¼ cup of the Parmesan cheese, the egg, parsley, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Spoon mixture into manicotti shells, using at least ⅓ cup per shell. Place filled manicotti shells in a single layer in greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Pour spaghetti sauce over manicotti shells. Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup mozzarella cheese and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 deg F for 35 minutes or until hot. Makes 4 servings.
When we made this we added the walnuts.....I prefer to use a ½ cup.....
As a side meat, use Italian Hot Sausage.
