I got this recipe out of a Cooking Light magazine and it is really good. The best part is - it is easier and healthier than most traditional manicottis. It has become one of the regular dinner around here.

  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups of the mozzarella, cottage cheese, and next five ingredients (through pepper) in medium bowl.

This was really good. Stuffing the manicotti shells is a litte bit of a chore, but once you get going it goes pretty quick. I worried that we would miss the meat, but we did not. Thanks for posting!
