Ingredients

  • 8

    ounces manicotti shells

  • 1

    (32-ounce) container ricotta cheese

  • 1 1/2

    cup (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella chesse, divided

  • 1/4

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1

    egg

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 1

    (10-ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well drained

  • 2

    cups spaghetti sauce

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cook manicotti shells according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again. In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, the Parmesan cheese, egg, salt, and pepper. Add broccoli; mix well. Fill each manicotti shell with about 1/3 cup cheese mixture (see Notes) and place in prepared baking dish. Pour spaghetti sauce over stuffed shells and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until hot and bubbling. Notes For an easy way to fill manicotti shells, place cheese mixture in a resalable plastic storage bag. Snip off a corner of bag and squeeze cheese mixture into shells. For an extra burst of flavor, add 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg to the cheese mixture
