Stuffed Manicotti


16oz cottage cheese 
8 ounces mozzarella            
3/4 cup Parmesan   
2 C fresh spinach
2 eggs                               
1 tsp dried parsley              
3-4 cloves garlic       
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste      
1 jar spaghetti sauce                       
1 box uncooked manicotti pasta

                  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella, and 1/2 cup parmesan, eggs, parsley, and salt and pepper. Mix well. Pour 1/2 cup sauce into an 11x17 inch baking dish. Fill each uncooked manicotti shell with 3 tablespoons cheese mixture, and arrange over sauce in a single layer. Pour remaining sauce over top, and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake 45 minutes, or until bubbly. Serves 6.
Tip: If you're having difficulty getting the cheese mixture into the shells, try pouring the mixture into a plastic zipper bag, or frosting bag. If using a plastic bag, cut the tip of one corner off the bag, add cheese mixture and close the bag, then squeeze the mix out of the cut opening into the uncooked shells.
