In ungreased 13 x 9 inch glass baking sheet, spread 1/3 of the pasta sauce.
In large bowl, mix spinach, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, oregano & pepper. Fill uncooked manicotti shells with spinach mixture; place on sauce in baking dish.

In medium bowl, mix remaining pasta sauce & water. Pour sauce mixture evenly over shells, covering completely.
