Stuffed Manicotti with Marinara
  • 1 package manicotti (You won't need them all, but some will break, so we just do the whole thing.)
  • 1-1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 head roasted garlic
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • 1/2 bunch parsley, chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • About 2 cups of your favorite marinara sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring six quarts of salted water to a rolling boil over high heat. Meanwhile, mix together ricotta, Parmesan, garlic, green onions parsley and salt and pepper. When well combined, taste for seasoning, then mix in the eggs.
  2. Boil manicotti for 5 to 6 minutes or until just barely Al Dente. remove from water carefully and set aside to cool. Discard any badly torn noodles (you only ned about 8 good ones, so you should be just fine)
  3. Place the cheese in a large zip-top storage bag and cut the tip off of one corner. Gently fill 8 Manicotti noodles and place in a baking dish. (You might get 9 or 10, depending on how much filling you get into each noodle) Pour marinara over the center of the noodles and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  4. Serve hot with a little freshly grated parmesan as a garnish.
  5. Share and enjoy!
