Individual Manicotti


I love to make Manicotti in individual baking dishes!  It's always special when everyone has their own little "pan" of cheesy goodness!! 
 It's also perfect for a very romantic dinner!


Individual Manicotti
Ingredients
  • 1 pint of ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 jar (23 oz) of spaghetti sauce
  • 1 package (8oz) of manicotti pasta
  • 1 whole carrot (optional)
Instructions
1.   Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2.   Cook manicotti shells according to package directions, drain and rinse with cold water
3.   In a large mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, mozzarella cheese, 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley and salt and pepper
4.   Heat spaghetti sauce in a small saucepan. *Tip- always cook it for about 30 minutes with a whole carrot to remove some of the acidity of the spaghetti sauce
5.   Meanwhile spoon about 3+ tablespoons of the cheese mixture into the manicotti shells to fill
6.   Spoon enough of the spaghetti sauce to cover the bottom of each individual baking dish
7.   Lay 2-3 filled manicotti shells on top of the sauce and cover with additional sauce
8.   Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes uncovered.
