Spinach and Cheese Manacotti

My mom takes advantage of the fact that I am off on Fridays. So on those days I'm in charge of dinner. This week she had bought some manacotti shells at the store, so I used that as my inspiration for my Spinach and Cheese Manacotti.

I really didn't use a recipe or anything for it, I just went off what I knew. Here's what I used.

1 32oz Container of Ricotta Cheese
1 package of chopped frozen spinach (thawed and liquid squeezed out)
1 tsp chopped rosemary
1 tsp chopped thyme
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup shredded parmesean cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzerella cheese
2 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and fill into cooked manacotti tubes. You may need to make it fit into 2 9x13 pans. Top with 2 cups of shredded Mozzerella cheese ( or any cheese of your choice). Cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, taking the foil off for the last 5 minutes so the cheese doesn't burn.
