    LexingtonMom's Note:

    Sorry-just not a purist about making my own sauce--this recipe is for those of us who want good flavor without all the fuss.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (8 ounce) box manicotti
    • 2 (15 ounce) whole milk ricotta cheese
    • 6 cups Italian cheese blend, shredded
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 (25 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce, Marinara flavor
    • 2 -4 teaspoons basil
    • 1 -2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 (25 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce, Marinara flavor

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Boil manicotti for 9 minutes, then run cold water in pan to stop the cooking process. I usually lay out the drained, cooked shells on wax paper.
    2. 2
      While pasta cooks, mix together in large bowl ricotta, only 5 cups of shredded cheese (reserve 1 C.), eggs, basil, and salt to taste.
    3. 3
      Cover bottom of 13 x 9 pan with some of the spaghetti sauce.
    4. 4
      Stuff shells with cheese mixture (I usually use a teaspoon--takes a little practice). Place in pan.
    5. 5
      Pour remaining sauce over stuffed shells, being sure all surfaces are covered with sauce. Cover with foil and cook for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
    6. 6
      Remove foil and cover with reserved 1 cup cheese, then bake uncovered for 10-15 minutes more until lightly browned.
