Meatless Manicotti


8 oz. manicotti shells, uncooked
1 (15 oz.) container ricotta cheese
1/2 c. grated fresh parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp. parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 jar spaghetti sauce, like Prego OR use your own, homemade sauce. 
grated *FRESH* parmesan cheese for topping

Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain.  In a medium bowl, blend the ricotta, parmesan cheese and egg.  Stir in parsley, salt & pepper.  Stuff pasta with the cheese mixture.  Arrange in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish.  Pour spaghetti sauce evenly over pasta shells.  Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese.  *I tend to use quite a bit over the top--your choice.  Cover.  Bake in a 350 degree oven until hot, about 35 minutes.
Serves 6-8
