Made for Fall 2007 PAC. This was absolutely spectacular. Because of a wheat allergy I couldn't make it with manicotti because I couldn't find them. I did, however, make it with 10 oz of penne and mixed the spagetti sauce in with all the other ingredients, spread it in a pan and topped it with mozzarella cheese. This will definitely be on my list of items to make often. I like the fact that there is spinach in it - all it needs is a side salad and you've got a really filling meal. Thanks Sunshine!
