    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Adapted from Taste of Home magazine. Prep time also includes time to cook the manicotti noodles. I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the mixture, to taste. Make sure you squeeze the thawed spinach as dry as possible.

      I made this with the omission of cinnamon and nutmeg. I loved it...hubby did not like the chopped onion (never does). The cream cheese, gave it an extra creaminess. My mom's group loved it! I will make it again. Oh yeah...used jumbo shells instead of manicotti. It made 22 shells.

      Delicious! I had enough filling (but I used extra cheese) for 10 manicotti shells which was perfect for us. I also used extra sauce because we like saucy pasta dishes. Thanks for sharing!

      My husband hates spinach, but I love it and needed a good recipe that I could get him to eat it in. THIS WAS PERFECT!!! He asks me to make it all the time now, especially when we have people come into town to visit.
