Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
32 ounces Ricotta cheese
1/2 lb grated Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped basil
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
12 to 16 Manicotti shells
2 jars Ragu
1/2 cup grated Mozzarella (to place on top of the Manicotti)

Directions:
Directions:
Mix the first 6 ingredients in a bowl.

Cook the Manicotti shells according to the package directions (should be firm). Drain shells and rinse in cold water until you can touch.

Cover bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish with sauce.

Stuff Manicotti with mixture and place in baking dish. I like to “cheat” and I cut the shells on one side – they’re easier to stuff and they hold up fine when served.

Cover with more sauce and the Mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350º for about 1 hour. Or, refrigerate up to 24 hours then bake.

Mom provided the recipe many years ago. I substituted the basil for the meat ( 1 ½ lbs as called for in the original recipe). Recipe submitted by Frank Scognamillo.
