Manicotti Primavera

I love this stuff. It is a lot like the stuffed shells.

8 uncooked manicotti
4 ounces mushrooms, chopped (1 1/4 cups)
2 medium carrots, shredded (1 cup)
1 medium zuchini, shredded (1 cup)
olive oil
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 1/2 tsps italian seasoning
2/3 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 container ricotta cheese
1 jar spaghetti sauce

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9x13 with non-stick spray. Cook manicotti according to package directions. Rinse with cold water.

Sautee vegetables with oil, garlic, and salt to taste. Cook until heated through.
Combine parmesan, mozzarella, and ricotta with vegetables.

Spread 1 cup of spaghetti sauce over the bottom of the 9x13 pan. Fill manicotti shells with cheese mixture. Place shells over sauce. Cover with remaining sauce.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
