1 lb. spicy Italian sausage
1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
1 jar (26 oz.) marinara sauce
2 eggs, beaten
3 c. ricotta cheese
3/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies
3 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 pkg. uncooked manicotti shells
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, bring tomatoes and marinara sauce to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, ricotta, parmesan cheese, chilies, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt, garlic powder, and pepper.
Put 1/2 sauce in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Stuff uncooked manicotti shells with cheese mixture. Place in prepared dish. Sprinkle with sausage and top with remaining sauce.
Cover and bake at 375 for 50 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and manicotti is tender.

Personal Notes:
I usually stuff the uncooked manicotti shells by placing the cheese mixture in a gallon ziplock bag and cut one corner off, then squeeze the mixture in the shells.
