Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 13 x 9 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain; rinse with cool water. Let pasta dry on paper towels. For filling, in medium bowl, stir together 3 cups mozzarella with the ricotta and fresh basil. Using a tsp, carefully stuff pasta shells with prepared cheese mixture. Or use grandma's secret to stuff the cooked manicotti. Put the cheese mixture in a large, heavy-duty reseal able plastic food storage bag. She would seal the bag and then cut off one corner, making the cut about the same size as the manicotti opening. Then gently squeeze the bag to fill the pasta with the cheese mixture. Spoon 2 cups spaghetti sauce into prepared baking dish. Arrange stuffed pasta over sauce. Pour remaining spaghetti sauce over top of pasta. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan; bake for 10 minutes longer. Serve immediately.
