Tender pasta sleeves filled with spinach basil, mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta cheeses . Topped with a fresh basil and whole cherry tomato sauce, then baked to infuse all the flavors. This recipe is a cheese lover’s dream.
Three Cheese, Spinach and Basil Manicotti
Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the manicotti sleeves for 9 Minutes. Once Cooked, strain off the water and set aside to cool.
In a bowl, create the filling by combining the ricotta cheese, spinach, basil, egg, garlic, red pepper flakes,and parmesan cheese. Season with salt.
Slide one half of a mozzarella stick into each of the manicotti sleeves. Use a Ziplock or piping bag to completely fill each of the manicotti sleeves.
Using an oven safe baking dish, large enough to hold all 6 of the prepared manicotti, coat the bottom of the dish with a thin layer of tomato sauce Place the manicotti in the baking dish, top with tomato sauce, and garnish with mozzarella. Bake in an oven at 350 degrees for 20 Minutes, or until the tomato sauce begins to boil.
