  • Make sauce: In hot oil in a 5 quart Dutch oven, saute onion and garlic 5 minutes.
  • Mix in rest of sauce ingredients and 1 1/2 cups water, mashing tomatoes with fork.
  • Bring to boiling, and reduce heat.

  • Beat with wooden spoon to blend well.

  • Spoon 1 1/2 cups sauce into each of two 12x8x2" baking dishes.
  • Place 8 rolled manicotti seam side down in single layer. Top with 5 more.
  • Cover with 1 cup sauce and sprinkle with parmesan.
