I boil my pasta while I’m reheating my Spaghetti aka Sunday Sauce

Mix the Ricotta Cheese and 1 1/2 cups of the Italian Cheese in a bowl

My 9×13 Pan was in the refrigerator with another dish in it for a cookout, so I used 2 8×8 pans. Once the pasta was ready, I drained it and put 1/2 in one dish, 1/2 in the other. Then I sliced open the Manicotti shells and put them in a neat little stack – which makes it SOOOOO much easier to fill!

Put a spoonful of the cheese mixture onto the pasta

Roll it up, and place seam side down in the pan

When you’re done, the pan should look similar to this

Pour the Spaghetti Sauce over the pasta

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes

Spread the remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese you reserved from the beginning over the top of the cooked dish

Serve up to a hungry family!
