Stuffed Manicotti Recipe~

I baked this one year with my older daughter-we had a blast making it and even more fun eating it~

Baked Stuffed Manicotti

1 lb. Ricotta cheese
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 lb  mozzarella cheese
1/4 lb. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c. italian bread crumbs
1 Tbsp parsley
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 jar Spaghetti sauce, I like Bertolli, it’s not acidic
1 small can Contadina Pizza sauce

Combine all ingredients except sauces, mixing well. Fill uncooked manicotti shells using a small spoon, or fingers-make sure you work any air bubbles out during the filling process.

Mix the sauces together.  Drizzle a little olive oil in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch glass casserole, to prevent the pasta from sticking. Add a heaping spoonful of sauce and spread around pan.
Arrange stuffed shells in a single layer, cover with remaining sauce.
Cover with foil and bake at 400 for 40 minutes. Remove foil; sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese and bake another 5-10 minutes.

Buon Apatite!
