  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, onion, and roasted garlic in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Continue to simmer until pan juices evaporate, about 10 minutes more. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, oregano, thyme, bay leaf, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and garlic salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until flavors blend, about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook manicotti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.
  4. Mix mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a bowl. Spoon a generous amount of the cheese mixture into each manicotti shell.
  5. Pour enough tomato-beef sauce to cover the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange stuffed manicotti over sauce; pour remaining sauce over pasta. Cover with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese over manicotti and return to the oven. Bake until cheese filling is melted, 10 to 15 minutes more.

I was too lazy to make the meatsauce so iI used pre -made sauce and a can of tomatoes with bground beef. It was very good and not as bothersome to make as I thought it would be.

This was very good. I made half recipe. I used fresh tomatoes from our garden and made my own sauce. I will make this again using Ricotto instead of Cottage Cheese or maybe half of each. Als...

I was searching for a simple manicotti with cottage cheese and I found this. My family loved it, and they usually hate cottage cheese. Definitely going to use this in the future.

I just tried this recipe .I have to admit I did what I usually critisize others for doing,I changed the recipe some, from the beginning.I like to use ricotta in these type of recipes and don't ...
