Beefy Manicotti Recipe
- 10 manicotti shells
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 egg
- 2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese, divided
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 (16 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
- 1/4 cup white Zinfandel
- 3 mushrooms, thinly sliced
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
step 2: Place ground beef, onion and garlic in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until beef is evenly brown. Remove from heat. Mix in bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, egg and 1 cup shredded cheese. Spoon filling into manicotti shells.
step 3: Combine tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, wine and mushrooms. Spoon sauce to cover the bottom of an 8x11 inch baking dish. Arrange filled manicotti in a single layer, and cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese.
step 4: Cover, and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove cover, and bake 10 minutes.
