    You can make a manicotti recipe and tuck into your meal right from your dining table at home. To begin, cook manicotti shells or pasta according to package instructions. Take out a bowl and combine a cup of parmesan, mozzarella cheese, spinach, an egg, and ricotta. Add some Italian seasoning and proceed to fill the shells with your mixture and arrange them in a 9×13-inch pan with marinara at the bottom. Bake it in your preheated oven until the cheese melts.

    Jollof rice 

    This nutritious dish is a favourite among at least eight countries in West Africa with each nation having its special way of preparing it. However, the ingredients that cut across are rice, tomato sauce, and the meat of your choice. Jollof rice can also be cooked with vegetables.

    A common way to cook this is to prepare the tomato sauce first. You can use fresh tomatoes, but most people prefer to use the paste. Start by frying your onions and grounded or powdered pepper in hot oil. Next, add your tomatoes and season them with dried herbs or seasonings of your choice. Allow it to simmer for a while, and add other vegetables if you have any.

    After 10 minutes, pour water into the sauce to your desired level. When the water boils, pour your well-cooked rice in and stir. Cover your pan and keep your heat at a low heat. Consider stirring your mixture occasionally to prevent your food from burning and keep it covered. When it is well-cooked, you can serve it with chicken, side dishes like salad and fried plantain, or eat it alone with hot sauce.
