What an interesting change from tradtional manicotti! You'll love the creamy texture of the cheese sauce! Note: if you slightly undercook the manicotti they will be easier to stuff.

My husband really liked this and said that it was better the next day reheated for his lunch. I thought that it was ok -- perhaps I just didn't care for the swiss cheese flavor of the sauce. If I tried this again, I think that I would use a different kind of cheese in the sauce -- maybe some more cheddar. Thank you.

Directions

  1. Saute onions until tender.
  2. Add ham, broccoli, cheddar cheese, and mayo, (I usually add a pinch of salt and pepper and a dash of garlic to taste too) When cheese is melted, remove from heat and cool slightly.
  3. Stuff manicotti with ham mixture, dividing between shells evenly, and place in a greased 9x13 inch pan.
  4. Melt butter in saucepan.
  5. Add flour and cook 1 minute.
  6. Add milk and cook, stirring constantly until thickened.
  7. Remove from heat and add swiss cheese, stirring until smooth.
  8. Pour sauce over manicotti.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until sauce bubbles.
  10. Perfect supper with a crisp salad and garlic bread!
