This blog... a compilation of my favorite recipes. They have been collected over several years found in various places: the internet, magazines, and cookbooks to name a few. These recipes are meals that I consider to "feed more than your body". These are meals that I hope nurish the heart and soul of those who eat them. I hope that when you have cleaned your plate, you feel like you have taken part in more than just a meal-that you have taken part in something bigger than yourself and food. Whether it is culture, your local place of living, or the life of the plant or those who share this planet, I hope these meals help your family-and mine-to appreciate that we are more than just beings consuming food; we are all connected. And more than that, I hope that these meals help you remember how fortunate you are and that "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.".

Makes 2 entrees, 4 servings each

1 24 oz container of cottage cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ c shredded mozzarella cheese
½ c shredded Parmesan
¼ t salt
¼ t pepper
1 8oz box manicotti (12-14 shells) uncooked
6 cups marinara (red) sauce

1. Mix cheeses, seasoning, and egg together. With fingers or spoon fill each shell.
2. Spread ½ c of sauce on bottom of each baking dish (if freezing-use a disposable 8x8 foil baking dish). Place 6-7 manicotti in each dish. Pour remaining 2 ½ cups sauce over each pan.
3. If freezing, wrap with plastic wrap and then foil. Freeze.
4. If not freezing, skip to step 2 below.

To cook one entree:

1. Thaw in fridge or bake straight from freezer.
2. Oven at 350.
3. Remove plastic wrap and replace foil. If thawed, bake 45 minutes, if frozen 1 hour. Remove foil and continue to bake until noodles are tender.
