Sausage Manicotti

Here's a yummy, easy recipe I tried the other day. It's a lot like lasagna, but just a bit different.
Sausage Manicotti- 7 servings
1 pound pork sausage
2 c. (16 oz) cottage cheese
1 (8 oz) pkg. manicotti shells
1 jar (24 oz) spaghetti sauce
2 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese

In a large bowl, combine sausage and cottage cheese. (I just used my hands and squeezed it all together. It was cold and my hands froze!)  Stuff into manicotti shells- I found clean hands worked well for this. Place in a greased 13x9 inch pan. Top with spaghetti sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Bake 10 minutes longer, or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Here's that appealing combo of sausage and cottage cheese:
The filled shells are ready to be covered with the spaghetti sauce. I had some extra filling that I just tucked in where I could.

  1. It looks pretty deadly. I've never quite gotten the hang of stuffing those shells without ripping them.
