Chief' Stuffed Manicotti

Chief's Manicotti

A favorite in my home, this hearty meal is comfort with a capitol C. A flavorful sauce combined with herbs, ground beef, and veal, cottage cheese, Veggies, and Pecorino Romano cheese combine to bake up into a filling and flavorful dish that is so versatile so as to please every palate. You can change it up with your own version, using a pesto, or Alfredo sauce, or a classic Bolognaise, or even a creamy mushroom sauce. This is our favorite version.

Tools:
Cookie press without end Used for easy stuffing tool)
Casserole dish
wide Dutch oven
colander

Ingredients:
19oz. crushed tomato
6 oz. tomato paste
3/4 lb. 80/20 ground beef
3/4 lb ground veal
1 tbs. minced garlic
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
2 tbs fresh minced parsley
1 yellow onion, minced
1 lb. minced button, oe cremini mushrooms
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano, or Asiago cheese
2 tbs. olive oil

Insert the noodles, and cook for 5 minutes, just enough to make the pliable enough to open up. rain. and lightly coat with olive oil to keep them from sticking together. Fill the cookie press with the filling, and insert the tipples end into one end of the noodles. Press the plunger to force the filling into the noodle.
