It doesn't say when to add the spinach.. but I found on another recipe that after the garlic and mushrooms are sauteed for 5 minutes to add the spinach and saute for 5 minutes. I made this tonight. It was good. Hard to stuff cooked manicotti shells, though. I wonder if you could stuff uncooked shells and cover with extra marinara sauce.
