Yield: 6 Servings
|8 ounces||Manicotti Shells, uncooked|
|10 ounces||Frozen chopped spinach thawed and drained|
|16 ounces||Part-skim ricotta cheese|
|1 cup||Grated Parmesan cheese divided|
|½ cup||Egg substitute|
|2½ cup||Diced cooked chicken breast|
|3 cups||Low-sodium tomato sauce OR- spaghetti sauce|
Prepare manicotti according to package directions; while pasta is cooking, squeeze all the water out of the spinach. When pasta is done, drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together ricotta cheese, ½ cup Parmesan cheese and egg substitute. Stir in remaining ingredients except tomato sauce. Spoon the cheese mixture into the manicotti shells and lay in a 9 x 13-inch pan and a 9 x 9-inch pan, or a pan large enough to hold all stuffed manicotti. Cover with tomato sauce and sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake 20 minutes. Remove cover and bake an additional 15 minutes, until cheese is golden brown.
