Mothers Day Dutch Oven Manicotti

allsidallsid Posts: 492
Mothers Day came a bit early this year.  I go under the knife this upcoming Wed and have been on liquids only now for 13 days.  So we decided to celebrate before the pre-surgery fast.  The pasta machine had been taunting me and although I originally contemplated doing Lasagna on the egg (a favorite) I called an audible and went with Manicotti.  Mothers Day Manicotti to be exact-
Ricotta, Mozzarella, Minced Parsley, Minced Onion, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, & Salt went into the mixer with an egg
After a good long mix in the Kitchenaid-

 Sausages Grilling off on the Small Egg Raised Direct
Cheese & Ground Sausage goes down on a wheat pasta 
A little too much stuffing for a tight cigar roll up, so I went for a modified burrito meets Donald Trump flop over method
I tried to keep too much filling from flopping out of the roll up-
All packaged up and ready for the Dutch Oven
Went on to the Small @ 375 for about an hour
Cheese melted nicely, but in full disclosure did get a quick hit with the blow torch before plating

Mothers Day Manicotti turned out quite well.  My pasta making skills have a long way to go, but I will save that for another day.  

Here is a link to a much more descriptive post I wrote about the dish-
I would love it if you checked it out-

Thanks for looking & Happy Mothers Day!

    Very nice cook. Good luck with the upcoming surgery. In our thoughts and prayers.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
