I was at this really big Safeway in the South Bay and finally fopund a box of Manicotti Shells! I've seen them make on TV a dozen times and have always wanted to give them a try. They were surprisingly easy to stuff and didn't rip apart or break like I was afraid they might. And what's that gooey white sauce on top, you ask? Cream of Mushroom Soup! How creative right? :)
Ingredients: (2 servings)
4 uncooked manicotti shells
1 c cubed cooked chicken breast
1 c ricotta cheese
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp garlic salt
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 can (10¾ oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cook manicotti according to package directions. In a small bowl, combine the chicken, ricotta cheese, basil and garlic salt. Drain manicotti; fill with chicken mixture.
2. Spread ¼ c of soup in an 8-in square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Add stuffed manicotti shells. Top with remaining soup and cheese.
3. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and filling is heated through.
