Let's Make It
1
Heat dressing in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and kale; cook, stirring constantly, 5 min. or until mushrooms are tender. Drain.
2
Mix egg, Neufchatel and ricotta in medium bowl until blended. Add dry seasonings, and 1/4 cup each mozzarella and Parmesan; mix well. Stir in mushroom mixture. Spoon into resealable plastic bag.
3
Cut large piece off one bottom corner of bag; squeeze Neufchatel mixture into both ends of each manicotti shell.
4
Spread 1/2 cup pasta sauce onto bottom of 6-qt. slow cooker sprayed with cooking spray; cover with 7 manicotti. Top with 1/2 cup of the remaining pasta sauce and 1/4 cup of the remaining mozzarella. Cover with layers of remaining manicotti, pasta sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan, then cover with lid.
5
Cook on LOW 4 to 6 hrs. (or on HIGH 2 to 3 hrs.).
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Variation
Omit kale. Cook mushrooms in dressing as directed. Remove skillet from heat. Add 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained; mix well. Continue as directed.
Tip 2
Important Note
This recipe was prepared in an oval 6-qt. slow cooker, which is the most common size of slow cooker. If prepared in a smaller 5-qt. round slow cooker, the ends of any manicotti touching the side of the slow cooker could possibly burn. To help prevent burning, line bottom half of slow-cooker insert with foil, then spray with cooking spray before filling with ingredients and cooking as directed.
Tip 3
Serving Suggestion
Balance this main dish with a smart side. Choose a mixed green salad or hot steamed vegetable to round out the meal.
