How to make it

  • Bring a large pot about three-fourths full of water to a rolling boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, coat a non-stick frying pan with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat. When hot, add the chicken or turkey and onion and cook, breaking up the meat with a spatula, until the meat is fully cooked, about 10 minutes. Scrape into a large bowl and let cool 10 minutes.
  • Squeeze any excess liquid from spinach. Add to the chicken along with the cottage cheese, thyme or basil, egg, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Using a wooden spoon, beat vigorously to blen.
  • Preheat an oven to 325 degrees.
  • Spread 1/2 cup of the sauce over the bottom of an 8-by-12-inch baking dish or other similarly sized dish.
  • Add the manicotti tubes to the boiling water, stir well and cook for 8 minutes; they should remain firm and slightly underdone. Drain them, rinse under cold water and drain again.
  • Using a small spoon, stuff each tube with about 1/3 cup of the filling.
  • Arrange in a single layer in the baking dish and spoon the remaining sauce over the top.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake until the sauce is bubbling a little around the edges of the dish and the filling is heated through, about 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and uncover the dish. Let stand for 5 minutes.
