If you make any of these recipes send me a picture and a little blurb on it if you have time. I'll add it to the right post. =)

Chicken Stuffed Manicotti

3/4 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup onion, minced
1/4 cup mushrooms, minced
1 1/2 T. butter
1/4 lb ground pork
3/4 cup cottage cheese  (I'll probably replace this with ricotta cheese)
1/3 cup cream
1/2 tsp salt
1 dash pepper
1 8 oz pkg manicotti, uncooked
3 cups spaghetti sauce

Bake chicken breast, uncovered, for 20 minutes at 350 degrees, until cooked through.  Meanwhile, cook onion and mushrooms in butter until soft.  Add ground pork and brown.  Remove from heat.  Finely chop chicken breast (in food processor or use the cookie paddles in your Bosch mixer.)  and add to ground pork.  Stir in cottage cheese (ricotta in my case), cream, salt and pepper.  Cover bottom of a greased foil baking pan with spaghetti sauce.  Place filling into a quart freezer bag.  Zip closed.  Snip off corner.  Squeeze filling into each uncooked manicotti.  Arrange on spaghetti sauce in pan.  Pour spaghetti sauce over all.  Cover with extra heavy foil.  Label and freeze.

There were no cooking instructions but I think you just thaw and cook covered for 30 minutes and then maybe uncovered for 20 minutes like the rest of them.
