Ham stuffed Manicotti

This stuffed pasta dish is a must-try crowd-pleaser.

  • Preparation: 90 minutes



  1. Cook manicotti as directed on package.
  2. Drain, rinse in cool water and set aside. Cook onion, garlic, and green pepper in 4 tbsp of olive oil until tender.
  3. Add ham and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Stir in 1/3 cup of grated Salerno Parmesan Cheese.
  4. In a separate heavy saucepan, heat 6 tbsp of butter until foamy. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture bubbles, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add milk, and cook, whisking constantly, until sauce thickens. Stir in Salerno Brick Cheese. Mix 1/4 of cheese with ham mixture.
  6. Fill manicotti shells with ham mixture. Spread about 1/2 cup cheese sauce in a greased 13" x 9" glass baking dish and arrange filled shells over sauce. Pour remaining cheese sauce over filled manicotti.
  7. Sprinkle 1/2 cup Salerno Parmesan Cheese on top and bake at 350 F for 40 to 50 minutes. Serve with a green leaf salad on the side.
