DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F
  • Bring 5 quarts of water to a rapid boil. For best results, add 1 tablespoons of salt.
  • Add pasta and stir; return to rapid boil.
  • Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 6 minutes.
  • Remove noodles from boiling water and place them in a bowl of cold water. Tubes will be firm; making them easy to fill but will finish cooking and become soft and tender while cooking in the oven.
  • In a large bowl stir together ricotta cheese, 1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley and seasonings.
  • Pour enough spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 13x9-inch pan to just cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Spoon about 1/3 cup cheese mixture into each pasta tube; place in the pre-sauced pan.
  • Pour the remainder of sauce over filled pasta; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover with foil; bake 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
