Spinach Manicotti

I've not mentioned it on here yet, but I started Weight Watchers about a week ago and have been trying new, low-point meals throughout the week. I made this Spinach Manicotti last night for dinner and it was really good. Even the hub, who isn't a big pasta fan like me, liked it a lot. So, whether or not you're watching your waistline, try these out. If you like cheese and spinach, you won't be disappointed.

1 1/2 cup bottle reduced-fat bottled pasta sauce
Cooking spray
1 large egg white
1 large egg
10 oz. frozen spinach, chopped
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. table salt
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
8 dry manicotti shells
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt. Drain and rinse. Combine cheeses, eggs, spinach, Italian seasoning, pepper and salt in a medium bowl, stirring well. Spoon mixture evenly into pasta shells (or do like I did and put it in a sealable plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner and pipe the filling in). Place shells in an 11x7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon pasta sauce evenly over shells. Cover and bake for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve warm. Yields 8 servings (1 shell and sauce).  5 points per serving.
