I really like this recipe. I used 1 pound of bulk Italian sausage (instead of the ground beef and sausage mix) and left off the sour cream and green onions because I didn't have them on hand - it was still really good! I used a ziplock bag with the corner cut off to fill the manicotti - went really fast that way. Easy recipe for those busy weeks!

Yummy and fairly easy to make.Had this at my Tex-Mex get together recently and everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. I made two batches one followed the recipe, on the other I left off the sour cream, but everyone seemed to prefer the one with the sour cream.
