Baked Manicotti

Last night we had a lot of catching up to do at our house. Laundry, dishes & cleaning, not to mention cooking dinner, all needed to be taken care of. Luckily, I have a super easy recipe for Baked Manicotti that I could prepare and let cook while I'm doing the things around the house the needed to be done. I found this super easy recipe on Kraft Recipes website.

 2 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
1¾ cups Original Ricotta Cheese
1½ cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
½ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 egg, beaten
¼ cup pesto
12 manicotti shells, cooked, rinsed in cold water

Heat oven to 350°F.

Spread ¾ cup sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish. Mix cheeses, egg and pesto until well blended; spoon into resealable plastic bag. Use scissors to cut small corner from bottom of bag.

Fill manicotti shells by squeezing cheese mixture into both sides of each shell; place in baking dish. Top with remaining sauce; cover.

Bake 40 min. or until heated through.

Note: Substitute Cottage Cheese for the ricotta and/or 100% Grated Romano Cheese for the Parmesan. If you prefer a more traditional style manicotti, simply omit the pesto.
