Italian foods are favorites with teens. This easy manicotti is hearty enough to fill even the biggest appetite.

Ingredients

3
jars (26 to 30 ounces each) tomato pasta sauce (any variety)
1
tablespoon garlic salt
4 1/2
pounds chicken breast tenders (not breaded)
3
packages (8 ounces each) manicotti shells
3
cans (2 1/4 ounces each) sliced ripe olives, drained
6
cups shredded mozzarella cheese, (24 ounces)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spread about one-third of each jar of pasta sauce in each of 3 ungreased rectangular baking dishes, 13x9x2 inches.
  • 2 Sprinkle garlic salt on chicken. Insert chicken into uncooked manicotti shells, stuffing from each end of shell to fill if necessary. Place 14 shells on pasta sauce in each dish.
  • 3 Pour remaining pasta sauce evenly over shells, covering completely. Sprinkle with olives and cheese.
  • 4 Cover and bake about 1 hour 30 minutes or until shells are tender.
Tips  

Cheese crisps make a special added touch! For each crisp, place about 1 1/2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese on foil-lined cookie sheet. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Make pans of manicotti the day before the party; cover and refrigerate. Bake manicotti about 2 hours before guests arrive.
