Sometimes I get in the kitchen and start to make something and it just evolves into something else. This is one of those recipes so if you are looking for something a little different, you may enjoy this recipe.
This stuffed manicotti recipe has a cheesy spinach filling and is drizzled with rich bacon Alfredo sauce! This is definitely not one of those light meals LOL.
Here's what you are going to need:
1 (12 ounce) package of manicotti pasta
For the filling:
1 (10 ounce) package of frozen spinach
1 (15 ounce) package ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
1 tablespoon of chives
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
For the sauce:
1/2 pound of bacon
6 tablespoons of butter
3 cups of heavy cream
1 1/2 cups of Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
A pinch of nutmeg
For the chicken:
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
Here’s what you need to do:
Cook the pasta according to the package directions just until al dente (about 5 minutes). Drain.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
While the manicotti is baking, heat a heavy skillet with the 1/2 cup of vegetable oil over medium heat.
Remove the manicotti from the oven and allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
I hope you enjoy this stuffed manicotti recipe!
