CHEESE STUFFED MANICOTTI
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, onion, and roasted garlic in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Continue to simmer until pan juices evaporate, about 10 minutes more. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, oregano, thyme, bay leaf, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and garlic salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until flavors blend, about 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook manicotti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.
- Mix mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a bowl. Spoon a generous amount of the cheese mixture into each manicotti shell.
- Pour enough tomato-beef sauce to cover the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange stuffed manicotti over sauce; pour remaining sauce over pasta. Cover with aluminum foil.
- Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese over manicotti and return to the oven. Bake until cheese filling is melted, 10 to 15 minutes more.

This is so simple and easy. You do NOT have to boil the shells or cook the meat ahead of time(you dont pre-cook your meat for meat loaf, do ya?) It all cooks perfectly together in the oven.

- Spread 2 tblsps of sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
- Combine first 8 ingredients together in a bowl.
- Take shells and stuff with the meat mixture.(I find it easier to use pastry bags filled with the meat mixture to stuff the shells or you can cut the end of a sandwich baggie and stuff them that way. Less messy and much faster.).
- Place shells in pan and pour remaining sauce of shells.
- Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, remove from the oven and top with mozzeralla cheese. Return to oven and bake and additional 15 minutes.
- Remove and enjoy.
- Goes wonderfully with a tossed salad and garlic bread.

CHEESE STUFFED MANICOTTI
This recipe is pretty quick and easy, that's why I like it. I found this recipe on the back of the "Ronzoni" Manicotti noodle box. The best way to prep the noodles is to pre-boil the noodles, making them still firm enough to stuff but soft enough for them to finish cooking when you bake the dish in the oven.

- Heat oven to 350°F
- Bring 5 quarts of water to a rapid boil. For best results, add 1 tablespoons of salt.
- Add pasta and stir; return to rapid boil.
- Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 6 minutes.
- Remove noodles from boiling water and place them in a bowl of cold water. Tubes will be firm; making them easy to fill but will finish cooking and become soft and tender while cooking in the oven.
- In a large bowl stir together ricotta cheese, 1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley and seasonings.
- Pour enough spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 13x9-inch pan to just cover the bottom of the pan.
- Spoon about 1/3 cup cheese mixture into each pasta tube; place in the pre-sauced pan.
- Pour the remainder of sauce over filled pasta; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
- Cover with foil; bake 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
- Remove from the oven and serve.

STUFFED MANICOTTI WITH FRESH MARINARA SAUCE
- Make the crepes (crespelle):
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and melted butter. Gradually whisk in the flour and salt until the mixture is smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour until slightly thickened.
- Spray an 8-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place the pan over medium heat. With a small ladle, pour about 3 tablespoons of the batter into the pan. Turn the pan at a 45 degree angle to coat the pan evenly so the batter forms a perfect circle. Cook the crepe only until lightly browned, about 30 seconds. Turn the crepe over with a spatula and cook the other side only until lightly browned, about 30 seconds. Slide the crepe onto a 12-inch platter and continue the process with the remaining batter. Stack the crepes between waxed paper so they don't stick. You can prepare these crepes a day in advance covered in plastic wrap in the refrigerator. No need to reheat the crepes before filling and baking.
- Make the ricotta filling:
- In a large bowl, add all the ingredients for the ricotta filling. With a large wooden spoon or spatula, stir all the ingredients until well blended. Store covered in plastic wrap in the refrigerator until ready to use. You can make this filling the day before.
- Make the marinara sauce:
- In a large heavy nonreactive saucepan with a lid, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic and cook until fragrant but NOT browned. Add the crushed tomatoes to the pan and crush further with a potato masher. Simmer 30 minutes, slightly covered, on medium-low heat, stirring every so often.
- Add the parsley, basil leaves and salt and pepper, to taste, and simmer for another 10 minutes until the sauce is slightly reduced. Taste and re-season as necessary.
- Put it all together:
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat the bottom of a 13 by 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with 1 cup of the prepared marinara sauce.
- Spoon 3 tablespoons of the prepared ricotta filling 1 inch from the edge of a crepe. Roll evenly into a log, keeping the filling even as you roll. Repeat with the remaining crepes. Place manicotti seam side down and side by side in the sauced baking pan.
- Spoon 1 to 2 cups of sauce over the top of the manicotti. Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan.
- Cover the baking dish loosely with foil and bake about 20 minutes. Uncover and bake another 20 minutes until the topping is golden brown and sides are bubbling. Let rest about 15 minutes before serving to firm up the manicotti filling.
- Par-boil manicotti noodles, drain.
- Place in a bowl of cold water to prevent sticking.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine eggs, 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese, 1/2 of the mozzarella,cheddar and ricotta cheeses and the seasonings.
- Drain shells, pat dry with paper towels.
- Fill shells with cheese mixture, spread 1/2 cup of the prepared spaghetti sauce over bottom of shallow 3 quart baking dish.
- Arrange filled shells over sauce; cover with remaining sauce and spoon remaining ricotta over each shell.
- Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan cheeses.
- Bake covered loosely with foil for 40 minutes.
SEAFOOD STUFFED MANICOTTI
This has been at the top of our favorites since 1991. Slightly labor intensive to make, but well worth it. Very light - the fontina white sauce with nutmeg and dry vermouth, along with all the other ingredients, make this a delectable choice. Great for a private romantic dinner or if you're having dinner guests who like seafood. Using a food processor makes the fine chopping easy. Recipe originally came from Sunset's Casserole cookbook.
