Manicotti Cordon Bleu

I haven't tried this yet, but I plan to soon. I actually found it on a coupon my milk man left for me and thought it looked interesting. If you try it too, leave a comment and let me know how you liked it!

ingredients:
1 pkg (12 oz.) string cheese snacks
12 slices deli ham or turkey
12 manicotti shells, uncooked
1 jar (26 oz.) pasta sauce
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup Artisan Blends Parmesan Cheese

directions:
1. Unwrap string cheese; place over each meat slice and roll up. Slide rolled cheese into pasta shell.
2. Combine pasta sauce and water; mix well. Spread 3/4 cup sauce mixture over 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange filled manicotti shells in dish; spread remaining sauce over mixture evenly over shells.
3. Cover with foil; bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 50 minutes or until pasta is tender. Top with parmesan cheese.

Note from Sara: Make sure you cook this with foil on until the noodles are soft. You may even want to buy the "ready to bake" manacotti noodles, or boil regular Manacotti noodles for a couple of minutes to get them started! Good luck!

This is a great dish! Easy to make and very yummy...my 1.5 year old daughter & husband love it. One tip: press cheese out with the heel of your hand before wrapping in ham...it slides in the manicotti much easier. I use the Mazhetti roasted garlic red sauce and it's THE BEST!
