Recipe: String Cheese Manicotti

Sunday is traditionally Pasta Day in our family. Today we're having String Cheese Manicotti. It's easy, cheesy and yummy! This recipe was shared with me at Hannah's Prayer Recipe board. It's one of our favorites. (I would post a picture, but am having computer/camera issues.)

String Cheese Manicotti

1 package manicotti
1 lb ground beef
1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce (I also use leftover, frozen Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce)
12 pieces mozzarella string cheese
6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (1 1/2 cups)

Cook manicotti according to package directions.
Meanwhile, in large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Stir in the spaghetti sauce.
Spread half the meat sauce into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
Drain manicotti; stuff each shell with a piece of string cheese.
Place over meat sauce; top with remaining sauce.
Cover and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Bake, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
