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.
