“When I make pasta, I replace the spaghetti sauce with mild salsa. I made cheese manicotti covered with salsa for a friend’s housewarming party and received compliments,” writes Margharita Fransis of Utica, Michigan.
For this fabulous, fuss-free dish, Elaine Spevak of Jacksonville, Florida turns to store-bought spaghetti sauce, then dresses it up with crisp veggies, olives, fresh parsley and cheese. The result? A healthy entree that’s “quick to prepare and sure to please,” she reports. “This is my very favorite pasta dish.”
Shredded zucchini and bottled Italian salad dressing give such yummy flavor to the cheese filling in this pasta bake that guests will never miss the meat. "It's the perfect size for a small gathering," informs Lisa Otis of Drain, Oregon.
