1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms

2 medium green peppers, chopped

2 medium onions, chopped

12 tablespoon olive oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

3 jars (26 ounces each) spaghetti sauce

1-1/4 cups water

1-1/2 pounds chicken tenderloins, halved lengthwise

4 teaspoons dried basil

2 teaspoons chicken seasoning

2 packages (8 ounces each) uncooked manicotti shells
