Tasty Tuesday . . . Trudy’s Microwave Manicotti

This is a recipe from my husband's cousin. She gave me a little recipe book when I first got married with easy recipes. This one is pretty easy and very good.

2 Eggs, beaten
1 pkg Cottage Cheese (15 oz)
1 t Italian seasoning
¾ c Parmesan cheese, grated
1 t Garlic salt
½ c Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 T Parsley flakes
1 t Minced onion
½ t Salt
¼ t Pepper

8 Manicotti shells
1 c Mozzarella cheese
1 jar Spaghetti sauce

Mix Italian seasoning, garlic salt and the spaghetti sauce and set aside. Cook 8 manicotti shells and drain. Combine the first 10 ingredients in a bowl and then stuff each shell with some of the filling. Take a glass dish and spread half of the sauce in bottom and put stuffed manicotti in a row and then top with the rest of the sauce. Cook for 13-16 minutes in the microwave. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese at the end of the cooking time.
