Simple Manicotti

A friend of ours loves manicotti but I regret to say I've never made it for him..... but I will one day. This recipe is simple to make and is pretty tastey.


  • 1 1/2 Lbs. ground beef

  • 2 Cups spaghetti sauce

  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder

  • 1 Tsp. salt

  • 1/2 Tsp. pepper

  • 1 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 14 large manicotti (cooked and drained)

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Remove from heat and drain off excess fat.

Stir in 1 cup spaghetti sauce, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cool for 5 minutes setting 1/2 cup of sauce mixture aside.

Add cheese to the remaining meat mixture and stuff into manicotti shells. Arrange shells in a greased 13 inches x 9 inches x 2 inch baking dish.

Combine remaining spaghetti sauce and reserved meat mixture and pour over shells.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees, for 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through.
