Ingredients

  • 10 Manicotti noodles cooked according to package directions
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 2 cups Bertolli Parmegiano-Reggiano Marinara
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Cook noodles according to package directions.
  • While noodles are cooking, combine ricotta, cottage cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, thyme, and chicken in a food processor, and process until fully mixed. The chicken will be very small and mixed with the cheese, making a filling mixture.
  • Spoon the cheese and chicken mixture into a large zipable plastic bag
  • Remove noodles from hot water, and snip one tip off the corner of the plastic bag,making a hole that is half an inch or so in diameter. Use it to pipe the filling into your noodles.
  • Place filled noodles in an 11 x 7 glass baking dish, cover with Bertolli marinara, top with cheese
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy.
