Cheese-stuffed manicotti personifies comfort food anytime, but take it up a notch with a cheese four-some and Italian sausage and it’s a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. This was inspired by a few pasta manufacturer web site recipes, but I added my own spin here and there and was pleasantly surprised how well they worked. Oh Mama-Mia, this is good!

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions to al dente stage (do not overcook); drain.
  2. Heat a large skillet or Dutch oven pan over medium heat. Crumble in and brown the sausage, stirring. Drain excess fat away. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is tender, 5-6 minutes.
  3. Stir in marinara sauce and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer uncovered 15 minutes or until it reduces and thickens.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. In medium mixing bowl combine 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese with ricotta, provolone and Parmesan cheeses, egg and parley. Mix well and stuff it into the cooked manicotti.
  6. Spread half of the marinara/meat sauce on bottom of greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Arrange stuffed manicotti over sauce. Spoon remaining sauce over top of pasta.
  7. Cover dish with foil and bake 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Remove foil; top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake uncovered 5 -10 minutes longer til cheese is melted.
