Easy Sausage Manicotti
This Easy Sausage Manicotti recipe is spectacular! Who doesn’t love a six-ingredient dinner recipe? It’s so easy to make, plus you don’t have to pre-cook the manicotti. Now that’s my kind of a recipe. E-A-S-Y! I used mild Italian sausage, ricotta cheese, a jar of spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning for increased flavor.
I know that anytime I make a pasta recipe, my husband is sure to eat it. Plus, he will eat leftovers over and over again. Not so with other food. While nothing is better than my favorite manicotti recipe, it’s also a lot of work. I make it every year for John’s birthday. This easy manicotti recipe, however, is so quick and easy that it makes my head spin.
The nice thing about this entree is it only takes about 15 minutes to prepare. Then pop it in the oven, and it’s done in about an hour. I added a tossed Poppyseed Mandarin Salad and it was all we needed. Easy and delicious.

If you enjoy manicotti, this is a great recipe.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Brown Italian sausage in a skillet over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Drain sausage on paper towels. Pat the sausage dry on top with paper towels, too, to remove excess grease.
Toss drained Italian sausage into a mixing bowl. Add ricotta cheese and Italian seasoning.
Stir ingredients together to combine.
Spread one-half cup of spaghetti sauce over the bottom of a 9×13″ glass baking dish.
Stuff manicotti to the brim with Italian sausage mixture. Place manicotti shells in a single row in baking dish.
Cover manicotti shells with remaining spaghetti sauce.
Sprinkle with remaining Italian seasoning.
Bake manicotti at 350 degrees for about 45-55 minutes, or until manicotti is softened and can be pierced with a fork. (Mine took about 55 minutes).
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top of cooked manicotti.
Return casserole dish to oven and bake an additional 5-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Serve with garlic bread and a tossed salad, if desired.
Easy Sausage Manicotti is just that. E-A-S-Y!!! This entree is kid-friendly too.
This meal was perfect served with Poppyseed Mandarin Salad.
