Recipe: Easy Baked Manicotti

2 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 3/4 cups ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup basil pesto sauce
12 manicotti shells, cooked, rinsed in cold water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread 3/4 cup of the spaghetti sauce on bottom of 13x9 inch baking dish.

Mix egg, cheeses, and pesto sauce until well blended.

Spoon cheese mixture into large resealable bag, cut off small hole on the corner and fill manicotti shells, 1 at a time, squeezing cheese mixture into both sides of each shell.

Place over sauce in baking pan.

Pour remaining 1 1/4 cups spaghetti sauce over manicotti.

Cover with foil.

Bake 40 minutes or until heated through.

Add a little mozzarella cheese on top just before done baking, long enough to melt, 10-12 minutes.

Makes 6 servings (2 each)
