Spinach Manicotti

Spinach Manicotti

Sorry I didn’t get a better angled picture. I didn’t realize until I was uploading I probably should have taken the pic at an angle. But they taste better than they look in this pic! Oh well, I’ll just have to make them again. 😉

1o Manicotti shells, prepared according to package directions

1 15 oz Ricotta cheese

1 cup mozarella

2 TBSP grated parmesan

1 13.5 oz can of spinach, drained

1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

In a 2 quart pot, boil the manicotti noodles 5 at a time. Meanwhile, mix together all the other ingredients, except the spaghetti sauce. Spread about 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce  in a 9×13 baking dish.

When the manicotti shells are cooked and drained an cooled at least enough to handle. Carefully spoon the cheese/spinach mixture into the shells. I use a baby spoon for this. Lay the filled shells in the baking dish. Cover with remaining sauce and sprinkle mozzarella or shredded Parmesan on top.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with a salad or zucchini and garlic bread and enjoy!

Do you have a manicotti recipe you enjoy?

  1. Oh, I love Manicotti! But I am way to lazy too make the filling. I end up just taking string cheese and flopping it into half cooked noodles. Then throw in all the ingredients into a baking dish. I might have to try and get the courage to make the filling, I am sure your Manicotti tastes A LOT better than mine. Love the baby spoon idea for filling- I think that was originally why I became lazy with it.
