6Place the shells side by side in the baking dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the top. Make sure the shells are completely covered. Cover the dish with foil.
7Bake for 45 minutes. then remove the foil, being careful not to let the hot steam burn your hands. Turn the manicotti with tongs ans sprinkle the other cup of mozzarella over the manicotti. Cover again, and bake another 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
