This spiralized, veggie packed version of manicotti is deconstructed, so the cheese and marinara sauce that typically fill the manicotti rolls are baked atop zucchini noodles, which are a manicotti replacement. Now, nothing can replace manicotti, but zoodles give your tastebuds that similar consistency!
Deconstructed Manicotti Skillet with Zucchini Noodles
Manicotti will always remind me of holidays at my grandparents’ home. My grandfather always served manicotti at Christmastime as one of the appetizers, which was crazy, because we had seven fishes ahead of us.
The filling is unbeatable and pillowy – ricotta cheese and chopped spinach wrapped in manicotti noodles, topped with marinara sauce and baked to ooey gooey goodness.
If you’re looking for a fun way to use zucchini noodles, a healthier take on manicotti, or just love cheese and zucchini, try this healthier, lighter version.
The Blade A noodles are big and cook perfectly in the oven to an al dente texture. If you want to add some meat to this, a ground turkey or beef would work great. Otherwise, enjoy it as is!
