As a child I was raised on Italian food. My mother made the best of the best :O) As a mother of three and a full time student I can never seem to find the time to make it just like mom use to so I have found ways to improvise! Same great taste with half the work......Here is what you'll need to make a great manicotti.
- 1 Box Manicotti noodles
- 1 Can/Jar of sauce
- 1 Small tub of ricotta cheese
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 pound Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 Teaspoon of garlic salt
- 2 Teaspoons of Italian seasoning
- 1/2 Teaspoon of pepper
Set aside noodles and sauce, then mix everything else in a bowl. Take this mixture and place into uncooked shells.....oh yes I did just say that ;o) Place filled shells into a baking dish and pour over the sauce. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour. If you like meat in your meal feel free to include it! Or any other ingredients just make it your own. This is also a great recipe for the crockpot.
