Broccoli, Ham and Cheese Manicotti

"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."

Ready In:
1hr 15mins



  • Saute onions until tender.
  • 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.
  • Stuff manicotti with ham mixture, dividing between shells evenly, and place in a greased 9x13 inch pan.
  • Melt butter in saucepan.
  • Add flour and cook 1 minute.
  • Add milk and cook, stirring constantly until thickened.
  • Remove from heat and add swiss cheese, stirring until smooth.
  • Pour sauce over manicotti.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until sauce bubbles.
  • Perfect supper with a crisp salad and garlic bread!

    I thought this was a really great dish! Instead of being spiced up, it's just simple ingredients that go great together! It doesn't take as long to prepare as I thought, but I may toss it all with rotini next time like a casserole to make it even faster. My box of manicotti had 14, so I just made them all instead of having 4 leftover. I had enough mixture to loosely fill them all, but I could have used more cheese sauce. It's not fine cuisine, but it's a great family dish and very kid-friendly!

    This was pretty good...there was just a texture thing that we did not care for. I don't know what it was. The kids liked it ok too.

    Thanks Pamela! I added a couple drops of tabasco sauce to the cheese sauce. Really yummy. A different pasta dinner without all the tomato sauce. We will make this again.

    This was very good. I used a combination of cheddar and monterey jack for the filling because I thought cheddar alone would be too strong for us. It was good with the swiss but I might try it with a different cheese sauce next time just to compare. Everyone enjoyed this, thank you Pamela!
