ground beef (may use 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 ground sausage)
barbecue sauce (your favorite brand)
Pre-heat oven to 350*. Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray.
In a skillet, brown ground beef, onion, and garlic until there is no pink left in the beef. Drain, and place in bowl.
While ground beef is browning, prepare the manicotti shells by boiling them in salted water until tender, but firm. DO NOT OVER COOK. Drain and rinse with cold water.
Add 3/4 cup BBQ sauce and 1 cup cheese to the beef mixture, and blend well.
Stuff manicotti shells with the beef/cheese mixture, trying not to split the shells. Be sure that the shells get full.
Place in prepared baking dish. Top shells with any left over beef mixture, spread remaining BBQ sauce over top of shells, and cover with 1 cup of cheese.
Bake 20-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and just beginning to brown. Serve hot.
