    Mike Cook's Note:

    Cheese stuffed manicotti covered in a homemade meat sauce. The tomato sauce is a garden or chunky style. I make the sauce in double batches and freeze. When I need a red sauce I defrost it, heat it, and add the remainder of ingredients (ground beef, sausage, or chicken)to complete the recipe.
