Rich & delicious manicotti can be calorie conscious.
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the mozzarella with all of the ricotta, cottage cheese, Romano, Italian seasoning, spinach, egg white and garlic. Stir well and set aside. Meanwhile, cook manicotti according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; do not overcook. Drain and rinse under cold water.
Lightly coat a 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) baking dish with cooking spray. Place manicotti in baking dish, spoon cheese mixture evenly into cooked pasta, and top with tomato sauce. Bake, uncovered, in preheated oven 25 minutes.
