8 manicotti shells
1 (10oz)pkg frozen spinach, thawed
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup minced onion
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 (6oz) can tomato paste
1 cup warm water
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp Italian herb seasoning
Cook shells as directed on pkg. Press excess liquid from spinach. In a bowl combine spinach, ricotta, eggs, onion, salt, half of parmesan cheese, and nutmeg. Mix well. Fill shells. Place in a 2qt baking dish.
Combine remaining ingredients except parmesan cheese. Mix well, pour over shells. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake uncovered at 375F for 30-35mins.
*Opt.- Add mozzarella cheese to top halfway thru cooking.
**To make filling the shells easier, I put the filling in a ziplock bag, zipped it closed, and cut one of the corners off and used it as a pastry bag. MUCH easier than trying to spoon it in.
