You can use any kind of pasta sauce you want--bottled, homemade, etc. When I'm lazy I use bottled sauce, when I'm not I use a lasagne sauce out of the Better Homes cookbook. I have never tried it with alfredo sauce, I'm not sure it has enough liquid for the noodles but it sounds good.
It is adapted by me from the Betty Crocker Easy Family Dinners
cottage or ricotta cheese
fresh or dry parsley
fresh or dry oregano
26-30oz pasta sauce
1 1/2lbs chicken tenders
14 uncooked manicotti shells
2 c shredded mozzarella cheese
chopped fresh basil leaves
Heat oven to 350. Beat egg in a bowl. Mix in cottage and parmesean cheese, parsley, and oregano (Sorry, I make this part up and don't measure so you'll have to guess the amounts). Set aside. Spread about 1/3 of pasta sauce in ungreased rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Sprinkle garlic salt on chicken. Insert chicken into manicotti shells, stuffing from each end of shell to fill if necessary. Fill in any gaps with cottage cheese mixture. Place shells on pasta sauce in dish. Put the rest of the cottage cheese mixture to fill in space around the shells. Pour remaining pasta sauce evenly over shells, covering completely. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and bake about 1 1/2 hours or until shells are tender. Sprinkle with basil.
