Easy Cheesy Manicotti
“If you love cheese – this is the recipe for you! There is cheesy goodness in every bite of this Easy Cheesy Manicotti.” Echo
1 8 oz package manicotti, uncooked
24 oz jar spaghetti sauce or 3 cups homemade spaghetti sauce, divided
3 cups ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp parsley flakes
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spread 1/2 cup of spaghetti sauce evenly on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
In a medium-sized bowl mix ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese, parmesan
cheese, egg, and spices until well blended.
Spoon the cheese mixture into a Ziplock plastic bag.
Clip one corner of the bottom of the bag, about 1/2 inch.
Pipe the cheese filling into the uncooked manicotti shells.
Start on one end of the manicotti shell until about 1/2 full, then pipe the mixture into the
other side filling the shell.
Place the filled manicotti shells in the 9x13 pan.
Pour remaining spaghetti sauce over the manicotti shells.
Make sure every shell is covered with sauce.
Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 55 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and take off the foil.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese over the shells and bake for 5 more
minutes, or until cheese is melted.
