Add the contents of the egg and cheeses in a large mixing bowl. Add the pepper and salt.

Place a nonstick skillet over a medium heat flame. Add the olive oil and wait for it to simmer. Add the spinach to the simmering oil and toss it until it wilts (about 2 minutes). Remove the spinach and add it to the filling mixture. Fold it into the mixture evenly.

Start assembling the manicotti inside a baking tray. Keep aside half of the sauce. Spread the rest of it on the bottom of the skillet. The zucchini noodles come next. Add the noodles on top of the sauce and coat it with the remaining sauce. Make two wells inside the noodles. Add the cheese fillings carefully to these wells. Top the entire mix off with some mozzarella and pepper seasoning.

Cover the baking tray with a foil and bake the mix for 25 minutes or so until the cheese melts completely and the noodles become soft. Your zucchini manicotti is ready! Remove from the oven and serve hot.
