This is a great, easy dish for a meatless meal but I usually serve some Italian sausage alongside for my meat-loving husband. I sometimes add chopped mushrooms to the sauce. Adapted from a Better Homes recipe.

Directions

  1. Cook manicotti according to package directions, being careful to not overcook (or they'll split while you're filling them); drain.
  2. Sauce: cook onion and garlic in butter until tender; stir in flour and blend well, then add milk all at once; Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly; add swiss cheese and wine; stir until cheese is melted.
  3. Combine egg, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, lemon peel and nutmeg.
  4. Fill manicotti with ricotta mixture (I use a small teaspoon to do this); arrange in a 12x7x2 inch baking dish.
  5. Pour sauce over the filled shells; cover and bake in a 350° oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
