-Combine eggs, ricotta, mozzarella, 3/4 cup Parmesan, and seasonings in
bowl; set aside.
-Spread 1/4 cup of the spaghetti sauce in bottom of
13" X 9" baking dish.
-Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain and toss with oil.
-If using shells, spoon enough cheese mixture into each shell to fill.
If using manicotti, using a pastry bag or plastic zip-top bag with a corner
cut out, pipe cheese mixture into each tube, filling completely.
-Arrange shells/manicotti in the dish; do not overlap. Use an additional
pan, if needed.
-Pour remaining sauce over shells/manicotti. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over sauce.
-Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Notes: For Spinach & Cheese Stuffed Shells or
Florentine Manicotti, thaw and drain the liquid from a 10 oz. pkg. frozen
chopped spinach; add to the cheese mixture. I bake a batch of these, then freeze in
Tupperware®, 3 in
each container, and microwave for 5 minutes when I want it.
Make It A Meal: Serve with
and a salad with
Salad Dressing like Olive Garden's®.

I did different was added a little fresh spinach. Everyone loved it.
