Super bowl manicotti enchiladas

Yield: 7 Servings

Measure Ingredient
14 Pieces manicotti; uncooked
1 pounds Extra-lean ground beef
1 medium Onion; chopped
1 Green bell pepper; ribs and seeds removed; diced
1 can (4-oz) chopped green chilies; drained
¾ cup Nonfat sour cream
½ teaspoon Salt
1 Jar (16-oz) mild; medium or spicy picante sauce; heated
½ cup Shredded low-fat Cheddar cheese
¼ cup Sliced green onions or red onion

Prepare pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, saute beef, onion and green pepper in a large skillet until browned: drain well. Stir in chilies, ½ cup of the sour cream and the salt. When pasta is done, drain well. Fill manicotti with beef mixture.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spread ½ cup of the picante sauce over the bottom of a glass 9-by-13-inch baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Place filled manicotti side by side on top of sauce.

Pour remaining sauce evenly over manicotti. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover with aluminum foil; bake 20 to 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Garnish with remaining sour cream and sprinkle green onions on top. Serve immediately. Makes 7 servings.
