This classic Italian entree comes together in a snap, but tastes like it took hours. “It's so tasty and easy to fix,” writes Carolyn Henderson of Maple Plain, Minnesota. “My family always enjoys it."

Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 65 mins

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 7


1 pound turkey sausage
2 cups (16 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
1 package (8 ounces) manicotti shells
1 jar (26 ounces) Italian baking sauce
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


In a large bowl, combine sausage and cottage cheese. Stuff into manicotti shells. To easily fill the shells, place the mixture into a 1 gallon ziplock storage bag and cut off a corner. Then squeeze the mixtures into the shells.

Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with baking sauce.

Cover and bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of a shell reads 160°.

Uncover; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
