For my filling. I use one large container of ricotta cheese, 1-2 eggs, salt, pepper, fresh chopped parsley (you can use Italian seasoning in place of it, though), about 1 cup of five cheese Italian blend cheese. Mix together and stuff your pre-cooked noodles (I don't cook them all the way, though, because they will cook more in the oven). Pour your favorite sauce over (I usually make my sauce, but have used a jarred sauce many times), sprinkle about 1 cup of Italian 5 cheese blend (or you can use plain mozzarella or mozzarella/provolone, Parmesan cheese (pretty much any combo of Italian cheese you like), cover and bake in a 350* oven for about 35 mins. Remove foil and cook another 5 mins or so to melt cheese.

 This is pretty much how I make my manicotti and stuffed shells.
