easy-cheesy-manicottiThis delicious easy-to-make manicotti recipe from Betty Crocker is a great make-ahead dinner idea. Keep one handy in your freezer for one of those hectic days when you are short on time and energy!

1 (26 ounce) jar chunky-style tomato pasta sauce
2 (9 ounce each) boxes frozen spinach, thawed & well drained
1 (12 ounce) container small curd cottage cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (8 ounce) package manicotti shells (14 shells)
1/4 cup water
1 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In an ungreased 13×9-inch baking dish, spread about 1/3 of the pasta sauce.

2. Stir together the spinach, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese oregano and pepper. Fill the uncooked manicotti shells with the spinach mixture; place on sauce in baking dish.

3. In a medium bowl, stir together the remaining pasta sauce and water; pour evenly over the shells, covering completely. Cover and bake for 1 hour.

4. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese; cover and bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until the shells are tender.
