A Manicotti Recipe

Ok, I have GOT to get better about taking pictures of what I cook because I pick recipes sometimes based on the little picture above them, but I never think of it until later.

Monday night I got home and had set out all of the stuff for stew and I thought, "that sounds boring". So, I pulled what I had and made crab manicotti. My friend, Laura, made manicotti ALL THE TIME in college and it was always so yummy! I was nervous about how it would turn out, but the hubs LOVED it! So, I thought I'd share it with you all.

Crab Manicotti


8 Manicotti Pasta Shells

3-1/4 cup your favorite spaghetti sauce (I used Progresso.)

1-15oz container of Ricotta

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan

1/2 can spinach (I would have preferred fresh, but I went with what was on hand.)

1/2 small can of chopped black olives

1/2 pkg of crab meat (or imitation crab if you are landlocked like us and 45 miles from a store big enough to offer the real thing)

A sprinkle of salt, pepper, Tony Chatcheres (spelling?), Parsley

Directions: Bring water to a boil and add Manicotti Shells. Cook for 6 minutes and then removed from water and lay on foil to cool. Shred crab meat and combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Pour and additional 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan, stuff shells with mixture and lay in pan, cover shells with remaining mixture, add another 1/4 cup of spagetti sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes on 350. Enjoy!
