    1       lb           Ricotta Cheese -- or cottage
                         Cheese
      1/2   lb           Mozzarella Cheese
    1       c            Parmesan Cheese

      1/2   lb           Spinach
 
   Sautee chopped onions and mushrooms until tender.
   Steam chopped spinach until wilted (or use thawed
   frozen spinach). Combine ricotta, mozzarella, 3/4 cup
   of the Parmesan, eggs, parsley, spices. Add spinach
   and 3/4 of sautee to mixture. Fill uncooked manicotti
   shells; place filled shells in a single layer in a
   greased 13x9 baking pan. Add remaining sautee to
   spaghetti sauce. Cover manicotti with sauce. Sprinkle
   with remaining Parmesan. Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes.
   
   This is probably my favorite Italian dish.
