Loved these! Substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta cheese, & grated Romano cheese for the Parmesan, if you choose. It is possible to substitute frozen, chopped broccoli for spinach. Found in Kraft's Food & Family.

Very good! I actually forgot to put the egg whites in the mixture, but it still turned out great. I will definitely try it again with the egg whites...maybe that'll make it even better.

This manicotti was very easy to prepare and everyone enjoyed it! I served it with Herbed Garlic Bread and used Granny M's Spaghetti Sauce as the sauce. Our 6 year old loved the filling which surprised me since the spinach was so visible.... but he loved it and even had seconds!!! Thank you DiScharf for a splendid dinner! My Three Chefs 2008.
