Tuesday's Meal: Spinach and Pancetta Manicotti

Emily Madden from H-E-B Cooking Connection shares a recipe for spinach and pancetta manicotti that's great for when the temperatures outside get a little chilly.

The recipe is as follows:


1 jar Orti de Calabria Amatriciana Sauce

1 pint ricotta cheese

8 oz HEB Italian Blend Fancy Cheese

2 eggs, beaten

8 oz manicotti pasta

1 Tbsp Adams Reserve Italian Seasoning

1 tsp garlic powder

5 oz bag HEB Organics Baby Spinach

6 oz pancetta, small dice


-Cook shells in boiling water for about 6 minutes. They should be almost done but not cooked completely. Rinse well with cold water.

-In the mean time, in a medium pot of boiling water place spinach for 1-2 minutes, no more. Drain and squeeze the excess water from the spinach. Try and get as much water out as possible.

-In bowl combine the cheeses, eggs, seasonings, spinach, and pancetta. Mix well. Place mixture in a ziplock bag and cut a hole in the corner just smaller than the pasta shell opening.

-Fill each shell with about 3 Tbsp of the filling mixture. Try not to over stuff.

-In baking dish pour about half the jar of sauce. Placed stuffed shells in dish and top with remaining sauce.

-Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 40-45 minutes. Serve with a salad and garlic bread!
