So I've decided....

..So I a friend of mine posts a recipe that she like every week and I really like it. So....I decided that I was going to do it too!!!! I think I'm a pretty good cook so I'm going to show you some of my favorites. No angel food cake recipe for you though! That one is mine!

I made this the other night and I was really impressed with it. It was kind of hard to fill the shells but I get the impression that gets easier with time. Enjoy!

Three Cheese Manicotti
1 (8 ounce) package manicotti
3 cups shredded mozzarella
cheese, divided
2 cups ricotta cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan
cheese, divided
2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 egg
2 tablespoons italian seasoning
2 (26 ounce) jars pasta sauce
1.Soak dry pasta in hot water for 15 minutes to soften a little.
2.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
3.In a freezer bag, mix 2 cups mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, garlic, egg, and basil. Stuff cooked manicotti with the mixture by snipping the cornner of the bag and filling the manicotti.
4.Spread about 2 cups pasta sauce over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Arrange stuffed manicotti in the dish, and cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
5.Cover with Foil and bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan, and continue baking 10 minutes, until mozzarella is melted and bubbly.
