    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.
