Source: Unknown
Serves: 6

15-1/2 oz. can pink salmon
12 manicotti noodles (or jumbo shells), cooked
10-oz. package frozen chopped broccoli, cooked and drained (could use fresh instead, probably 8 to 10 oz.)
1/2 lb. 0.5%fat cottage cheese, or ricotta cheese
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2-1/2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. dill, crumbled
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups skim milk
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Make Sauce:
In a saucepan, over low-medium heat, blend flour and milk until smooth, add seasonings and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.

Make Manicotti and Assembly:
Drain salmon and mash. Combine cheese and egg in a bowl.

Stir in salmon and cooked broccoli. Fill manicotti with mixture.

Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Cover the bottom of the dish with a small amount of sauce. Arrange the manicotti over it. Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes.
