Not everyone in my family cares for ricotta cheese. So, I stuffed these yummy little guys with ground beef and cream cheese. They were a hit at the dinner table. Everyone asked for seconds :)

8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature

tomato sauce, + 1 cup

I'm going to have to give this a try. Sounds really good. I've already got a big jar of homemade marinara sauce in the freezer I can use with them!!

@Jen, My husband does not like ricotta cheese at all either. I have substituted cottage cheese in some recipes; and company has not noticed the change. Looking forward to trying these soon!
