Cheese Manicotti With Spinach

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by CaribbeanQueen

This a very simplified version of a great Italian dish. It can be made in advance and refrigerated until baking. I normally never use jarred sauces because I have the time to make sauce from scratch but to speed this recipe up, use sauce from a jar. Just make it a top notch brand.

Instead of adding the spinach to the top of the manicotti I add it to the cheese mixture....really makes a hearty dish!
