Sausage - Anjanette's Manicotti for 2

Manicotti for 2  

  • 1 box Manicotti shells (you won’t use all of them, but I usually break one or two when stuffing them, so you’ll want to make about 8 or so. 
  • ½ lb. Italian sausage (optional – I have never made them with meat, they’re just fine with cheese only if you prefer.)
  • 1 ½ C meatless pasta sauce
  • 1C ricotta cheese
  • ½ C mozzarella cheese divided
  • ¼ C parmesan cheese
  • ½ t. Italian seasoning
  • ¼ t. garlic powder
  • ¼ t. pepper
  1. Cook manicotti according to package directions
  2. If you use meat, cook it and drain. Stir in sauce
  3. Drain manicotti and rinse with cold water
  4. In a bowl, combine ricotta, ¼ C of the mozz. cheese, parmesan, and seasonings
  5. Stuff manicotti
  6. Put in a greased 11x7x2 baking dish
  7. Top with sauce
  8. Bake uncovered @ 350 for 30-35 minutes.
  9. Sprinkle with remaining mozz. cheese and bake 3-5 minutes longer until cheese has melted.

** If you have leftover cheese, just make more manicotti shells stuff them.  You might try stuffing the shells by filling a baggie with the cheese mixture, cutting a hole in the corner of the bag and then squeezing it out into the pasta. 

** This is REALLY good with garlic bread.  J
