Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pas
Easy Caesar Dressing
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
In a medium bowl, combine thawed and drained spinach, feta cheese, ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, shallot, egg, and olive oil. Set aside in fridge.
Add manicotti pasta shells to pot of boiling water. Set timer for 5 minutes- you just want them softened.
Drain and rinse pasta in a colander under cold water.
Spray 2 pieces of plastic wrap with cooking spray.
Place drained pasta shells on one sheet of plastic wrap and cover with second piece of wrap.
When you arrive home…

Cover with pasta sauce.
Tear lettuce in bite size pieces directly into salad spinner. Rinse and spin dry.
Arrange lettuce on serving plates.
