Sorry this isn't a great picture- I was in a hurry. I tried a new Manicotti recipe tonight. I wasn't crazy about it, but my husband liked it and my kids gobbled it up! It is fast and easy if nothing else. Easy Baked Manicotti
source unknown
2 cups spaghetti sauce, divided (store bought or homemade)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 3/4 cups ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup pesto (store bought or homemade)
12 manicotti shells, cooked, rinsed in cold water
Preheat oven to 350*. Spread 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce in bottom of 9x13 baking dish. Mix egg, cheeses and pesto until well blended. Spoon mixture into plastic bag-cut a small hole from one of the corners. fill shells by squeezing mixture into both ends. Place manicotti over sauce in baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over shells. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes or until heated through. Serves 6
