Cheese Manicotti

Ingredients
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 ounces tomato paste
  • 24 ounces water
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 14 manicotti noodles
  • 1 1/2 cup ricotta
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 pound Mozzarella, grated
  • 1/3 pound Parmesan, grated
  • 6 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
  • Parmesan for sprinkling
Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 F. To make the sauce, gently saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat until the onion is translucent, about five minutes. Add the tomato paste and stir. Slowly add the water and stir. Add the seasonings and allow the sauce to simmer while preparing the manicotti and filling. Bring a large pot of water to the boil, add the olive oil, and drop in the manicotti. Cook al dente, about 12 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold running water. Set aside. Beat the ricotta with the eggs until combined in the large bowl of an electric mixer. Add the grated cheeses and softened butter, beat until combined. Add the salt, pepper and basil. Beat on low just until everything is combined. Gently fill the cooked manicotti with the cheese mixture and arrange in two greased 9"x13" pans. Cover the pasta in each pan with half the sauce, sprinkle on additional Parmesan. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the cheese is thoroughly melted and the sauce is bubbling.
