Spinach Manicotti

This recipe is really delicious and the nice thing if you are having company. (6-8 servings)


  • 1 carton (15 oz.) ricotta cheese
  • Ad
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) thawed and squeezed dry spinach
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese, set 1/2 cup aside
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese or just use 2--1/4 cups setting aside 1/4 cup
  • 1 egg or 2 egg whites
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh parsley (if you have dried parsley on hand it will do)
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Jars (28 oz.) spaghetti sauce with meat*
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz) manicotti

*You can use any type you like. And you can add other things depending on the amount of time you have.


In a large bowl combine:

Spinach, 1 cup mozzarella, Parmesan, egg (or egg whites), parsley, onion and garlic powder. Combine spaghetti sauce and water:spread 1 cup sauce in a 13x9x2 inch ungreased pan.

Stuff uncooked manicotti with spinach mixture. Arrange over sauce. Pour remaining sauce over manicotti. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Leave set for 30 minutes. You can add a salad or Italian bread. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes.

I also have a salad like this to go with dinner. Nine Layer Salad

This is great you can make this the night before, the manicotti. If you have children who are are old enough, they could do the salad while you make the Manicotti. It is simple, quick and not expensive.
