When I bought a 25-year-old cookbook at an auction, I found this gem inside. I think you'll make it again and again, as I do.

Ingredients

  • 4 uncooked manicotti shells
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

Directions

  1. Cook manicotti according to package directions; drain. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, oregano and thyme; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add 1/2 cup cheese; stir until melted.
  2. Stuff half meat mixture into manicotti shells; arrange in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Spoon remaining meat mixture over shells.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted.
