"My husband says this dish is restaurant quality. It can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator overnight. Very filling and great served with a salad and garlic bread."


  • 1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 85 g minced onion
  • 1 egg
  • 3 g minced fresh parsley
  • 1 g pepper
  • 0.7 g garlic powder
  • 170 g shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 40 g grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 (26 ounce) jars spaghetti sauce
  • 355 ml water
  • 1 (8 ounce) package manicotti shells


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine ricotta, spinach, onion and egg. Season with parsley, pepper and garlic powder. Mix in 1 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan. In a separate bowl, stir together spaghetti sauce and water.
