DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Stir in the garlic, leeks and water. Cover and gently sauté, stirring occasionally, until the leeks soften, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the spinach and basil. Cook, covered, for about 5 minutes, until the spinach wilts, stirring once or twice.
  • Uncover and cook a few minutes longer on medium high heat to evaporate as much excess moisture as possible. Drain if necessary.
  • Combine the mozzarella, Parmesan, ricotta and nutmeg with the vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook the pasta until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Drain well.
  • Fill each manicotti and place in a lightly oiled 9 by 12 inch baking dish. Pour half of the tomato sauce over the manicotti and cover tightly with foil.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve hot and pass the remaining sauce at the table.
