  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook the manicotti according to package directions and rinse in cold water.
  2. Chop all the ingredients. In a frying pan, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic, chopped peppers, tomatoes and eggplant and let it cook for at least 15. Add the salt and black pepper. Then add the spinach and let it cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from the stove

  3. In a medium-sized bowl combine ricotta, one cup of mozzarella cheese, vegetable mixture, salt and pepper to taste

  4. Stuff the shells with the cheese mixture. I find that using a piping bag works the best.

  5. In a 9 x 13 inch, pan add 1 cup of marinara sauce to the bottom. Line the manicotti in an even layer. Cover with remaining sauce and cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from the oven and serve.
