Artichoke Stuffed Manicotti - Weight Watchers

"This is from a 2004 Weight Watchers magazine. Only 4 points per serving (serving = 2 manicotti) - sounds delicious! Haven't tried it yet, will update this when I do....(I will use fat-free ricotta)"

Ready In:




  • Cook manicotti according to package directions. Drain in colander, rinsing under cold water.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray two (1 1/2-quart) shallow baking dishes with nonstick spray.
  • Combine the artichoke hearts, ricotta, Parmesan, scallion greens, salt and pepper in a food processor, pulse until fairly smooth.
  • Using a small spoon, fill each manicotti tube with about 3 tablespoons of the artichoke mixture.
  • Spread 1/2 cup of marinara sauce in the bottom of each baking dish.
  • Add 6 of the manicotti to each dish and top with remaining sauce. Sprinkle each dish with half the mozzarella and cover with foil.
  • You can place one dish in the freezer (for up to 2 months).
  • Bake, covered, until hot, about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking until the cheese bubbles, about 10 minutes more.

    I thought this was a good recipe & everyone @ work liked it too... I will make it again but add chopped spinach & mushrooms to the filling. I prefer a lot of filling in the manicotti & the addition of extra veggies will fill them right up without adding too many extra calories. Thanks for a terrific recipe!

    Great starting point for me! I sauted fresh chopped spinach in some garlic and olive oil, then added other ingredients. (More cheese for me!) Also made a quick and easy fresh marinara sauce. Loved it. Thinking next time maybe add crabmeat?

    DELISH!!!! I almost added garlic, thinking it would need it. It didn't, it was PERFECT!!


I have been a member of recipezaar and for years. This is definitely my go-to place for recipes and love that I can have all my individual cookbooks to sort and store recipes. ? I like to experiment when I cook and find that I rarely follow a recipe as it is written. I am also pretty health conscious and try to cook low-fat for regular everyday meals (you can't skimp on the rich stuff for holiday meals & treats!). I also avoid processed foods and use fresh wholesome ingredients whenever possible.
