"Wonderful blend of crab, spinach and Swiss cheese with fresh dill."
Cook manicotti according to package directions; drain well and rinse with cold water and drain again; set aside.
Melt butter in a medium pot over medium heat.
Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Whisk together flour and milk until smooth; add to garlic.
Continue to cook, stirring often, until sauce is bubbly and has thickened, about 7 minutes.
Stir in tomatoes, 1/2 cup of the Swiss cheese, dill, crushed red pepper flakes, salt & pepper.
When cheese has melted, remove from heat.
To prepare filling, combine crabmeat, cottage cheese, spinach, remaining Swiss cheese, Parmesan and egg in a large bowl; mix well.
Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Using a teaspoon, carefully spoon filling into each manicotti shell, being careful not to tear them.
Place manicotti in baking pan in a single layer.
Pour sauce evenly over top.
Cover with foil and bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, uncover and let cook for 5 minutes before serving.

Very good and different from the usual! The fat content in the cheeses I used was different - some higher and some lower -- but in the end I don't think it mattered that much. I had some mixture left over but filled 12 shells. A very good and interesting version of manicotti. Thanks for sharing!
