Cannelloni Pie by Mags

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 pkg. Pierino frozen cannelloni (or equivelent)
  • 1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 bag shredded parmesan cheese
  1. Brown ground beef - Drain.
  2. In a bowl, mix ground beef, 1/2 the jar of spaghetti sauce, 1/2 a bag of mozarella cheese, and 1/2 a bag of parmesan cheese.
  3. Press mixture into bottom of greased 9x13" pan.
  4. Boil frozen cannelloni for 2 minutes.
  5. Lay cannelloni on top of mixture.
  6. Pour rest of spaghetti sauce on top of cannelloni.
  7. Spread rest of mozzarella and parmesan cheese on top too.
Same-Day Cooking:
  1. Bake in preheated 450 oven for 25-30 minutes.
  2. You'll want to cover it with foil so your cheese doesn't burn.
To Freeze and Eat Later:
  1. Cover tightly with foil (or plastic wrap and foil). Freeze.
  2. On Cooking Day, thaw and REMOVE the plastic wrap (if you used it).
  3. Follow "Same-Day" Cooking instructions above.
--> Alternate Idea: Use all of the spaghetti sauce for the "pie bottom," and then pour 1 jar of Alfredo sauce over the top with the rest of the cheese.
