  5. Mix all filling ingredients until fully combined. Spoon into quart sized zip top bag then cut one bottom corner off. Pipe mixture into cooked manicotti shells then transfer to baking dish.

  6. Bake manicotti 15-20 minutes or until heated through and sauce is bubbling.

Keep additional sauce on a warming burner while manicotti bakes. If sauce thickens too much, whisk in splashes of milk until desired consistency.
