DIRECTIONS

  • Boil manicotti according to package directions, adding oil to water so they won't stick (actually we have had a discussion about this and I'm not sure that works, but I do it anyway!) Meanwhile, mix ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, parsley, and eggs.
  • Drain manicotti; run cold water over it.
  • Stuff each manicotti with cheese mixture.
  • Place them in a 3 qt casserole after treating the dish with nonstick spray, and pour sauce around the manicotti.
  • Cover dish with foil and freeze.
  • When frozen you can pop it out of the container and put in a freezer bag if desired.
  • To prepare for serving, thaw and preheat oven to 350F.
  • Cover and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake for 15 minutes more.
