Italian manicotti pasta in the form of wide tubes is filled with juicy ricotta, chicken and spinach filling and baked in a gentle creamy Alfredo sauce under a layer of grated cheese. The filling will contain grilled chicken, and before filling the filling, the manicotti tubes do not need to be boiled: they will be ready for baking in the sauce. This significantly reduces cooking time. The highlight of the casserole is slices of crispy bacon, covering manicotti with melting cheese on its surface. You are waiting for a hearty homemade pasta at its best!

Recipe preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 ° C.
  2. Alfredo Sauce:

    In a large skillet over medium-high heat, fry the bacon until it becomes crispy, 7-8 minutes. Lay on a plate covered with a paper towel and set aside.

    In the pan with the remaining melted fat, add the garlic and leek and fry until it is clear, about 2 minutes. Add cream, parmesan, red pepper and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Add cream cheese and cook until the sauce thickens and the cheese melts, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in parsley, salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Filling:

    In a large bowl, put spinach, ricotta, chicken, grated cheese, red pepper, lemon juice, 1 tsp. salt and a little freshly ground black pepper and mix to evenly distribute. Transfer the mixture to a large pastry bag (or ziplock bag) and cut a small corner.

  4. Paste:

    Lay out 1 tbsp. sauce to the bottom of a heat-resistant (not glass) baking dish 22×32 cm in size and distribute. Place the filling on both ends of the uncooked manicotti tubes to completely fill them and arrange them in a baking dish. Top with the remaining sauce, fried bacon and grated cheese. Cover with foil and bake so that the sauce bubbles and the pasta is baked, 30-40 minutes.

  5. Remove the mold from the oven and remove the foil. Switch the oven to grill mode. Fry the casserole surface until it is browned for 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
