So easy because you don't cook it before you stuff it!

Stuffed Manicotti


16 UNCOOKED manicotti noodles
16 oz of cottage cheese
2 lbs. browned and drained Italian Sausage
1 egg
Spinach (if desired)
Marinara sauce (1 can)
Shredded Cheese of your choice
1 cup water


Mix cottage cheese, egg, meat and spinach in a bowl.
Then, stuff UNCOOKED shells with the cottage cheese, egg, meat and spinach.
Spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a baking dish then, add stuffed noodles and then cover with sauce and then add water.
Bake covered for 30 minutes then add shredded cheese and cook for 10 more minutes. It's great!
