Cheese and Mushroom Manicotti

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Asha1126

I love mushrooms! And if I can combine them with cheese (my other passion) and pasta than it can't get any better. You can use Asiago cheese instead of cheddar, which goes great with mushroom as well. This recipe does not require pre-cooking the pasta.

This is one of my favorite recipes from my teenage years. It is originally from Sunset's Casserole Cook Book from 1980 which I still have.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a large bowl combine 1 cup of the Mozzarella with all of the Cheddar cheese, mushrooms, olives, onion, bread crumbs, egg, milk, parsley, and pepper until mixed well. Set aside.
  3. Combine spaghetti sauce and water and pour half the sauce into a shallow 3 quart casserole or baking dish.
  4. Stuff manicotti shells with cheese mixture and arrange side by side in sauce. Pour remaining sauce over top.
  5. Bake, covered, in a 375F degree oven for about 1 hour. Remove cover and sprinkle with remaining Mozzarella cheese, and return to oven, uncovered, for about 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. Serve with Parmesan cheese, your favorite garlic bread and side salad.
