A hearty dish that the family will love! Spinach Manicotti is delicious and has healthy ingredients making it a sure-fire hit!Everyone loves the comfort food of a lovely Italian Dish right? Pasta just makes you feel good. Spinach Manicotti is the PERFECT family comfort food dinner because while it has all the cheesy saucy yumminess it also has some spinach hiding in there. Anytime I can squeeze in a little bit of veggies? I’m a happy mom. Yeah I’m not calling this health food, but something is better than nothing right?

Ok I gave you a small speech about having a veg in there (you guys use whole grain manicotti as well for a much healthier choice), but let’s move on to how amazing this dish is. The taste? You’re going to LOVE LOVE LOVE! Spinach Manicotti is just so good you’re going to love for real! I’m so excited for you to try it.

This is an awesome dinner for a good Sunday Supper. It makes a bunch so invite a couple of friends – you’re going to be happy you did. It’s a great meal for guests and family alike. It’s a recipe to keep for sure! Bring in some garlic bread maybe you do a salad and voila – you have an amazing dinner. One of the reasons I love a pasta dinner is there really isn’t a need for side dishes (I’m the worst at the side dish you guys!). Maybe all you need is a nice bottle of wine and some awesome plates? Maybe!

Let’s look at some more amazing pasta dinners! You can be inspired for a month!

  • 2 c mozzarella

Instructions

  1. Boil the manicotti and have it ready, I like to have mine al dente, so as not to overcook it in the oven
  2. Make sure your sauce is ready to go too,
  3. Mix the ricotta cheese, ½ c of the mozzarella cheese, 1 c of the parmigiana cheese 2 eggs and oregano together until well blended
  4. Stir in the well drained spinach and season to taste
  5. I used a pastry bag to fill my pasta with the end just cut off
  6. Fill pasta and divide into baking dishes if you plan on freezing a batch
  7. After the pasta is filled and in the baking dish cover with sauce then sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella and parmigiana cheeses
  8. Cover with foil and bake at 375℉ for 35-40 minutes, remove foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes until cheese on top is just starting to brown
  9. For freezing
  10. Prepare as above, but skip baking, should keep for up to two months
