Easy Stuffed Manicotti Recipe

We love the flavors of spaghetti around here so much that it is on the menu weekly, but it can get old. That is when I decided to add some different texture but similar flavors to this Easy Stuffed Manicotti Recipe.

Really this is easy and delicious… We aren’t big on ricotta here that is why we substituted mozzarella and fontina.

Add onion, oregano, pepper, salt and simmer just till brown.
Let meat mixture cool
Add half cheese to meat and mix
Add pasta to a 9x13 pan
Once cooled enough to touch tilt manicotti slightly and spoon in the meat mixture. I usually end up with extra meat, so I add that to the empty nooks and crannies. Don't over stuff.
