Baked Meat Manicotti Recipes

Ingredients :

1 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

28-oz can tomatoes

5.5-oz can tomato paste

1 envelope spaghetti sauce mix

1/2 cup water

8 manicotti shells

1/2 lb spinach

1 tbsp olive oil

3/4 lb ground beef

1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper

4 oz Mozzarella cheese, cut in very small cubes

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method :

Heat 1 tbsp (15ml) olive oil in medium saucepan. Add onion and garlic and cook gently 5 minutes, stirring. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, spaghetti sauce mix and water. Break up any large pieces of tomato. Bring to a boil, turn down heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes. Cook manicotti shells in boiling salted water 7 minutes. Drain. Remove stems from spinach and wash enough leaves to make 2 cups (500ml) when packed. Cook spinach in the water clinging to its leaves just until it wilts. Drain and chop finely with kitchen shears. Heat 1 tbsp (15ml) oil in skillet. Add ground beef and green pepper and fry until meat is lightly browned, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, drain off any excess fat and cool. Toss meat, chopped spinach, cheese cubes and egg together with a fork. Use to stuff the manicotti shells.

Heat oven to 375F (190C). Have ready a 12 x 8 x 2-inch (30.5 x 20.5 x 5-cm) glass baking dish. Put about 3/4 of the tomato mixture in the baking dish. Lay the stuffed manicotti in the sauce and pour remaining sauce over all. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 30 minutes or until very hot.
