In the meantime prepare Manicotti filling, in a large mixing bowl, using a fork blend together ricotta cheese, eggs, parsley, a little salt and pepper.
Stir in grated mozzarella and parmesan cheese and mix until well blended.
Align noodles in a single layer in a 13x9 baking dish or two 11 by 7-inch baking dishes, then pour marinara sauce evenly over filled manicotti noodles.
Bake in preheated oven until cooked through, about 45 minutes and serve warm.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 20 - 30 seconds until lightly golden.
Add in crushed tomatoes, basil and parsley and let simmer while preparing pasta and filling, about 10 - 20 minutes.
Recipe has been updated Oct 2019. I've found previous amounts made too much filling.
