We absolutely loved this recipe. I did make my own cause for it once and we all thought it was better
Meat mixture was good, but none of us liked the spaghetti sauce addition. We're not used to jarred sauce, so that may have been the problem. It seemed easy to whip up, but it wasn't worth it.
This is such a great recipe. I thought the shells would be hard to stuff but the meat mixture was really easy to work with (I used 1.25 lbs of ground beef instead of the .75 called for in the recipe). This was wonderful and I will definitely put this in my regular recipe rotation.
Great recipe! Everyone really enjoyed it. I used ground beef instead of sausage because that is what I had. It was a great change up for pasta night.
Very good! My husband liked this a lot too. Great for 2 people. I divided into three small pans. We enjoyed one pan for dinner and I have two meals ready to go in the freezer!
Easy and delicious.
One big step saver, I do not boil the noodles. Follow the directions, add 1 cup of water to dish, cover and bake.
This is a good crowd-pleasing recipe. It is very cheesy and the cream cheese in the mixture is a nice touch. I made the recipe exactly as written as I am a true believer in not being critical of a recipe until you try it as written. However, since I'm not a huge fan of prepared spaghetti sauce I think a homemade tomato sauce would send this recipe over the top (if you have time to prepare it). Having said that - the recipe is very nice the way it is.
This recipe was fantastic. I will make this again soon. Easy and delicious!
I made this last night and it was incredible!! I did exactly per the recipe and had some extra meat left over after stuffing the 14 manicotti shells, so I just put it over the manicotti in the pan before baking since I didn't have any shells left. I will definitely make this again and again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
