Manicotti Lasagna

I served mine with Cesar salad and homemade cheddar bay biscuits!!!

This recipe came from....ME! I had some manicotti noodles I wanted to use and wanted to make something with stuff I already had. It came out SOOO delicious!

What you will need:

1 lb. Ground beef
Small curd Cottage cheese
Italian seasoning
Garlic powder
Onion powder
12 Manicotti noodles
Marinara sauce
Mozzerella Cheese

Preheat oven to 425. Brown meat with seasonings (italian, onion and garlic powder) and add in chopped onion for extra flavor. Boil manicotti noodles to where they are slightly still stiff so you can stuff them easily. Drain noodles and let cool. (you may want to add some EVOO so they don't stick together). Coat bottom of baking dish with a little bit of the marinara sauce. Add in your desired amount of cottage cheese to the meat mixture. Fill each noodle with the mixture and lay in dish. Cover noodles with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 15 min. Then uncover and bake for an additional 5 min. MMM, so simple!!!
