Manicotti and Meat Sauce

by Permanent Posies on March 15, 2011

Welcome to Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits and Grocery Shop For Free.  I invite you to join us by adding a recipe post at the bottom of the page so we can enjoy your recent creation in cooking.  Well, for that matter, it can be an old post, as long as it is about food.  Please link back somewhere on your post.  Check out Grocery Shop For Free for great ideas on saving the family money at the store.




1/2 chopped onion
1/2 lb. sausage
2 lbs. ground beef
1 can tomato paste
2 (28 oz) cans of crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 can tomato sauce
3 cups water

Simmer on low in a crock pot for 6 hours.


1 (32 oz) carton of ricotta cheese
1 (16 oz) pkg of mixed Italian cheeses
2 eggs
1 tbsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 pkgs no boil lasagna noodles

Soak the noodles in hot tap water for about 10 minutes or until pliable.  Mix the rest of the ingredients, except for half the Italian cheeses.  Use the lasagna noodles to roll up part of the cheese mixture, making it look like manicotti.  This recipe makes one 9×13 and one 8 inch square pan.  Cook at 350 for 40 minutes.  Put the cheese on top and cook another 12-15 minutes, to melt the cheese.
