Align noodles in a single layer in a 13x9 baking dish. Pour marinara sauce evenly over filled manicotti noodles. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm. *Marinara Sauce* Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, simmer 20 minutes (do this while preparing the manicotti filling and pasta).
