1/2 Photos of Chicken & Spinach Manicotti
Chef Toujours's Note:
I LOVE Italian/pasta foods; however, I am NOT a fan of ricotta and cottage cheese! So, unfortunately there are times when I see something I really want to try but don't not knowing, OR knowing, what cheeses were used. So, after seeing this item at an Italian restaurant (which I didn't order because it contained ricotta cheese) I decided to create my own version by "borrowing" bits and pieces of recipes to create this dish...a DEFINITE family favorite! ENJOY =)

Units: US | Metric
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 6 ounces Baby Spinach (finely chopped)
- 8 ounces KRAFT Shredded Three Cheese with a Touch of PHILADELPHIA
- 10 ounces Philadelphia Original Cooking Creme or 10 ounces Philadelphia Savory Garlic Cooking Creme
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 -3 stalks green onions (finely chopped)

- 15 ounces classico low-fat alfredo sauce (also good with regular sauce)
- 1Preheat oven to 400°F.
- 2Combine all ingredients (top 12 items) in large mixing bowl. Cook manicotti “per package directions” (I actually cook the manicotti for about a minute to a minute and a half LESS than what is directed for a firmer noodle – easier to stuff!). Drain and rinse pasta with cool water.

- 4Coat manicotti with Alfredo sauce.
- 5Garnish with additional Parmesan and red pepper flakes if desired.
