Cheesy Manicotti

I made this recipe the other night when my oldest son had his first playdate. I was a litle nervous about having something "weird" when other kids were at our house, but it got a big thumbs up from all of them! One even went home and told her mom how good supper was... Wahoo!! Very easy to throw together, other then the fact that I need to work on my manicotti stuffing technique! :)

Cheesy Manicotti
(recipe found at

1 8 oz box manicotti shells
2 cups spaghetti sauce
1 cup parmesan cheese

stuffing ingredients:
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon basil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 egg

Boil manicotti as directed on package. Make sure that they are al dente. Let cool. Mix together stuffing ingredients, then fill manicotti with mixture. Line 9x13 pan with spaghetti sauce, place noodles in pan, pour over more spaghetti sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 15 minutes, remove foil, top with parmesan cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
