  • 1 package (8 ounces) manicotti shells
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • In a large bowl, combine sausage and cottage cheese. Stuff into uncooked manicotti shells. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Top with marinara sauce.
  • Cover and bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the center of a shell reads 160°.
