Cheesy Vegan Manicotti – Top Good Healthy Traditional Italian Weight Loss Diet Tip

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cook the pasta 1-2 minutes less than the package instructions so they will hold the shape. Drain, cool, and set aside till you’re ready to stuff the tubes.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, Combine the ricotta cheese, egg, salt, pepper, 1 cup of the mozzarella (reserving the other 1 cup), and parmesan. Mix well. Grate the carrot, zucchini, squash, and broccoli. Add the vegetables to the cheese mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Stuff the cooled pasta with the cheese and vegetable mixture. Coat the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan with 1 cup of sauce, such as Homemade Marinara Sauce. Line the manicotti up in the baking dish and top with the remaining 2 cups of sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake, covered with foil, for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 5-10 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with a green salad and garlic bread.

Marinara sauce

  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the onion and saute over medium heat until translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the wine and cook on high heat, scraping up all the brown bits in the pan, until almost all the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, parsley, salt, and pepper. Simmer on the lowest heat for 25 to 30 minutes.
