Recipe Ingredients for Spinach Four Cheese Manicotti

1 serving Spanish Olive Oil
0.25 cup, chopped Onions
2 clove Garlic
13 oz Ricotta, Part Skim Milk Cheese
2 cup Mozzarella, Low Moisture, Part Skim, Shredded
4 oz Cream Cheese Neufchatel 1/3 Less Fat
0.33 cup Freshly Shredded Parmesan
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 serving Sea Salt
1 tsp Peppercorns
6 oz Spinach
6 serving Manicotti
1/4 cup Freshly Shredded Parmesan

Recipe Directions for Spinach Four Cheese Manicotti

Set oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. In a skillet, saute onion (if using) in oil for about 4 minutes or until softened (adding in the garlic the last 2 minutes). In a mixing bowl combine the ricotta cheese, 2 cup mozza cheese, cream cheese, 6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning; beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and well combined. Season with white salt or seasoned salt and black pepper to taste. Stir in onion mixture and spinach; mix well to combine. Spoon into cooked and cooled manicotti shells. Pour half of the pasta sauce into the prepared baking dish. Arrange shells over sauce (at this point you may cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours, or continue with the recipe as follows). Top with the remaining sauce, use a spoon to spread the sauce over the shells (the sauce does not have to cover the shells completely). Sprinkle about 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (or to taste) over the sauce. Cover and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and top with mozzeralla cheese (any amount desired). Bake 5 mins longer, or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 mins before serving.
