  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 package manicotti shells (8 ounces)
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce (divided)
  • 1½ cups shredded Italian Blend Cheese (divided)


Cook Manicotti Shells according to package directions.
Pre-Heat oven to 350F.
Using a large skillet brown the ground beef over medium high heat; breaking up the meat as it cooks. Drain if needed. Stir in the onion powder, salt, pepper, and 1 cup of spaghetti sauce.
Reserve and set aside ½ cup of the meat mixture. Combine the rest of the meat mixture with 1 cup of the shredded cheese.
Fill the shells using a small spoon, and your fingers, to press the filling into the shells. Arrange the shells in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Mix together the set aside ½ cup beef mixture with the other cup of spaghetti sauce and spoon over the shells.
Bake covered with aluminum foil for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with the left over shredded cheese. Bake uncovered for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
