Ricotta, Chicken and Broccoli Stuff Manicotti

This was the other dish I made for my sister in laws Birthday Dinner.  Both of the dishes were really good, guess it depends on you taste buds and if you prefer Alfredo Sauce or Marinara.   Making these are alot of work but then again I love cooking but it sure wears me out.

I box Manicotti shells
1 8 oz container Ricotta Cheese
1/2- 3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 egg
2 TBL parsley
1/2 TBL oregano or italian seasoning
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic salt
salt and pepper
2-3 large boneless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1/2 onion
2 cloves garlic
olive oil

In a large pot cook Manicotti until Aldente, drain and set aside.
In a bowl combine Ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese egg and spices and mix well. Set aside.
In a large skillet add olive oil and cook some diced onion, add chicken pieces and cook until done, add the garlic and finish cooking.  When room temperature add it to the Ricotta mixture.  Fill Manicotti shells and place in a 9x11 baking dish with marinara sauce covering the bottom, line the filled shells up then sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top and then top with more marinara sauce.  Bake for about 25 minutes covered and until heated fully through.  You can take the foil off when you have about 10 minutes left to cook.

Serve with a nice salad and home made bread.  Enjoy!!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week and Always Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the Things You L♥ve.
