The dairy products provide you with calcium which strengthens bones and facilitates health function in cells to allow nerve transmission.

How to Make Meat filled manicotti

  • Take 2 tbsp sauce and spread it on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Combine manicotti, ground beef, sausage, onion, egg, oregano, garlic powder and ricotta cheese in a bowl. Cook the beef on medium heat until it is brown. Drain and cool.
  • Preheat the oven to about 350 degrees F. Stuff the shells with the mixture.
  • Cover the top of the pan with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Bake the mixture in preheated oven for about 60 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!



  • Ricotta cheese isn’t technically cheese. This is because ricotta is made from whey. Alternate Italian versions of fresh ricotta are ricotta salata and ricotta affumicata, made by lightly salting the cheese and ageing it for sixty to ninety days.
  • Like Ricotta, Parmesan cheese also gets better with age.

Cheese preparation is a smelly process and can be very off-putting to even the most diehard of cheese fans. If your nose is sensitive, we would suggest you to steer away from cheese factories.
