PCLinuxOS Recipe Corner: Ground Beef & Sausage Manicotti

Ground Beef and Sausage Manicotti


    1 (8-ounce) package uncooked manicotti shells
    1/2 pound hot Italian sausage
    1/2 pound ground round
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    2 cups whipping cream
    1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic,
    and oregano, drained
    2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
    3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; rinse in cold water. Drain. Place in a single layer on a wire rack; set aside.
  2. Remove casings from sausage, and discard. Cook sausage, ground round, and onion in a large skillet, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and set aside.
  3. Add wine to skillet, stirring to loosen browned bits; bring to a boil. Add whipping cream and the next three ingredients; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 15 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; cover and set aside.
  4. Combine meat mixture, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. Spoon mixture evenly into 12 manicotti shells; arrange shells in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
  5. Bake, covered, at 350º F for 20 minutes. Uncover and pour cream mixture evenly over shells; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350º F for 10 more minutes. Broil, 5 1/2 inches from heat, for two to three minutes, or until cheese is lightly browned.
