Please Share Y'all!

 

In this post I’ll be sharing a delicious Beef Manicotti Dinner Recipe.

The filling in this recipe is a double batch and will fill 28 manicotti shells. If you do not need to serve a large meal, you can freeze half of the filling to use at a later time. You also have the option to make up a foil pan of stuffed manicotti to freeze and bake another time.

Manicotti is a wonderful stuffed pasta meal. The size of the manicotti pasta make it ideal for filling with a variety of delicious ingredients.

This is a meal that the whole family will love and become a regular in your dinner rotation.
