 Ben is extremely well-fed because he knows how to compliment the chef.  
 This earned a “Darling, you've outdone yourself” earlier this evening.  
 Hope it is as well-received in your homes!
 
 MARVELOUS MANICOTTI
 
 
 6 manicotti noodles
 *cooked, rinsed & drained*
 1/2 package frozen chopped spinach
 *thawed and squeezed dry (er)*
 1/2 cup white mushrooms
 1/2 cup shitake mushrooms
 1/2 cup onion
 1/2 cup pepper
 *sauteed in red wine, open a nice bottle & drink the rest*
 1 cup fatfree cottage cheese (or that dryer kind of cottage cheese)
 I forgot!
 4 cloves garlic sauteed w/ the rest of the stuff
 Italian herbs to taste
 1/2 cup fatfree Parmesan
 
 All measurings except the six noodles (which serves 2) are approximate.  
 Really, I guess you can put in about anything you like.  I left the 
 mushrooms out of Ben’s because he’s weird that way.  Anyway, stuff this 
 mixture into the shells. You may have some left over. So sue me.  Put 
 them in a baking dish and pour one jar of Healthy Choice f/f spaghetti 
 sauce over the noodles.   Bake at 400 F for about 45 minutes.  This is 
 very easy and I hope you like it as well as we do. Mangia!
