Manicotti with Red Bell Pepper Sauce
From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com as submitted by Denise Dewenter McNett of Hollister.
1 bunch fresh spinach
To make the stuffing for the manicotti put the spinach, onion, garlic, and feta cheese in your food processor with the steel chopping blade in place. Whirl these ingredients together until thoroughly mixed into a paste like consistency. Stuff the dry manicotti shells and place in a single layer in a large flat casserole dish. Set aside. For the sauce, whirl together the peppers, tomatoes, balsamic, sea salt, pepper, and basil in your food processor. Pour the sauce and the water over the manicotti. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Sprinkle the cheeses on top of the manicotti and bake 10 minutes in the hot oven until the cheese is melted and browned.
