Manicotti With Meat Sauce!
Susan is back with another recipe Manicotti With Meat Sauce!
Italian meals are very much a comfort food to me and I love the way they fill the house with mouthwatering aromas!
Here is one you’re sure to enjoy and add to your menu often:
1/2 chopped onion
1/2 lb. sausage
2 lbs. ground beef
1 can tomato paste
2 (28 oz) cans of crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 can tomato sauce
3 cups water
Simmer on low in a crock pot for 6 hours.
1 (32 oz) carton of ricotta cheese
1 (16 oz) pkg of mixed Italian cheeses
1 tbsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 pkgs no boil lasagna noodles
Soak the noodles in hot tap water for about 10 minutes or until pliable. Mix the rest of the ingredients, except for half the Italian cheeses. Use the lasagna noodles to roll up part of the cheese mixture, making it look like Manicotti. This recipe makes one 9×13 and one 8 inch square pan. Cook at 350 for 40 minutes. Put the cheese on top and cook another 12-15 minutes, to melt the cheese.
Hi, my name is Susan and I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love. I am quite skilled at shopping 🙂 and finding a bargain just makes my day.
