    Default Traditional Manicotti

    12 large manicotti shells
    4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
    2 cups ricotta cheese
    6 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or 2 tablespoons dried basil
    1 26-ounce jar prepared spaghetti sauce, divided
    1/2 cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 13 x 9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

    Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta with cool
    water. Let pasta dry on paper towels.

    For filling, in medium bowl, stirtogether 3 cups mozzarella with the ricotta and fresh basil. Using a teaspoon, carefully stuff pasta shells with prepared cheese mixture. (or put in a ziplock baggie with a corner snipped off and squeeze the mixture into the shells)

    Spoon 2 cups spaghetti sauce into prepared baking dish. Arrange stuffed pasta over sauce. Pour remaining spaghetti sauce over top of pasta.

    Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella.

    Bake manicotti for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan; bake for 10 minutes longer. Serve immediately.

    I love Manicotti. That use to be the ONLY thing I ate at Olive Garden, and last time we were there they told me they took it off the menu How many italian resturants don't serve manicotti.

    I've been meaning to make it myself and after reading this I may have to do that soon.
