Chicken Manicotti

I have never dared to try to make manicotti.  It just looked so intimidating to me.  That is until a few days ago when I decided to give it a try and it was much easier than I thought.  It turned out great and my family loved it.
Here is the recipe:

Chicken Manicotti
1 package manicotti shells
1 pound of shredded chicken
8 oz. cottage cheese or ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella
2 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 oz. can of tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 350.  Boil manicotti according to directions (do not overcook - soggy pasta is nasty!) and let cool.  Mix cottage cheese, 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, shredded chicken, parsley, salt, and pepper.  Stuff cooked manicotti noodles with mixture.  Top with tomato sauce and the rest of the shredded cheese.  Bake for 30 minutes.
