Don’t you just love pasta?? We seriously can’t get enough of it at our house. This is one of our favorites. The bread crumbs, cheese, and sausage make for an incredible filling. And again . . . the three-cheese Prego sauce. Anything to make life easier, right?
1 box manicotti noodles
1 lb. sausage, browned
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
2 pieces bread, crumbed
2 eggs, beaten
1 jar Prego Three Cheese sauce
Boil manicotti noodles 8 minutes. Drain. Meanwhile make filling: combine sausage, 2 cups shredded cheese, bread crumbs, and eggs. Pour 3/4 cup sauce into greased 9 x 13 pan and mix with 1/3 cup water. Stuff noodles with filling using large Ziploc bag with a corner cut out. Arrange filled noodles on sauce in pan in single layer. Top with additional light layer of sauce (3/4 cup or so). Cover with foil and bake at 375 for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Cover again with foil. Allow cheese to melt five minutes and serve.
