This was pretty good. I used cottage cheese instead of Ricotta, and baked the manicotti in the spaghetti sauce..It was missing a little something, next time I make this I will add in some extra seasonings to my liking! Definitely worth trying.
I put the sauce in the bottom of the pan and then placed the filled manicotti on top. I then added more sauce on top and sprinkled it with mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Cooking the manicotti in the sauce makes a difference.
I only had one pack of the frozen spinach, used cottage cheese instead of ricotta and added in some spices (oregano, basil, and parsley) after reading the reviews.
I added a lot of garlic salt for more flavor. Delicious!
I took the suggestion to use cottage cheese instead of ricotta and loved it!
My husband totally loved this one! what I would recommend though is add another cup of mozzeralla cheese on top.
Has anyone made this with white sauce? My husband tries to stay away from the tomatoe sauce if possible.
I'm glad I read the suggestion of placing the filling in a ziploc bag and using that to fill the pasta - otherwise it may never have been filled. It did, however, need some other sort of seasoning because it was a little bland, but with a little tweaking that can be fixed.
I was very good will make it again
I did make this recipe and even the kids (who don't like spinach) ate it and loved it. Just a hint for the person who said they had a hard time stuffing the shells: put the filling in either a large pastry bag with large hole tip or in a gallon-size freezer bag with about a 3/4" to 1" wide hole cut in one corner. It's really easy to stuff the cooked manicotti shells or jumbo shells. Squeeze some into each manicotti shell from each end so it will be full and voila! You're done in no time! Hope this tip helps.
