How to make it

  • Combine uncooked meat, beans, 1/2 cup diced onions and taco seasoning; fill uncooked manicotti shells with mixture. Arrange filled shells in a 10x7 glass baking dish. Combine water and salsa; pour over shells. Cover with plastic wrap, poking a couple holes in it to allow steam to escape as it cooks. Microwave on High for 5 minutes; let it stand for 5 minutes. Cook on High for another 5 minutes. Using tongs, remove saran (BE CAREFUL of steam!) and turn shells over. Cover again, venting as before. Microwave on Medium for 10 to 18 minutes, until pasta is done. If your microwave does not have a turntable, be sure to turn baking dish every 5 minutes during all cooking times. Combine sour cream, ¼ cup chopped onions and olives; spoon down center of baked casserole. Top with cheese. Microwave on High, with just a piece of waxed paper on top to prevent splattering, for 1 minute, or until cheese begins to melt. Serve with jalapeno pepper slices on the side for anyone who likes more “heat”.

    Thank you so much for Posting this recipe for my benefit. I am most grateful my friend. I have Bookmarked it and also printed a copy for immediate use. I will let you know how I get on. thanks again. It sounds great.

    I am afraid I will have to give the Olives a miss, as I have never been too keen on them, but I am sure it will not matter. Also can you tell me what Jalapeno Peppers are? Could I use Red or green Pimento Peppers that we can get here?
