      1/2  cup           Milk
      1/4  cup           Onion -- Chopped
    1      tablespoon    Parsley -- Snipped
    3                    sl            Bread -- Torn Up Small
    1      teaspoon      Salt
    1 1/2  cup           Mozzarella Cheese -- Shredded
      1/4  teaspoon      Pepper

                         -----PASTA-----
    8      ounce         Manicotti Shells -- 1 Pk
                         -----TOMATO SAUCE-----
    4      ounce         Mushroom Stems & Pieces
    1      tablespoon    Italian Seasoning
   15      ounce         Tomato Sauce
      1/2  teaspoon      Sugar
   12      ounce         Tomato Paste
      1/2  teaspoon      Salt
      1/4  cup           Onion -- Chopped
      1/8  teaspoon      Pepper
    1      Clove         Garlic -- Minced
      1/3  cup           Parmesan Cheese -- Grated
    4      cup           Water
 
 Cook and stir the meat and the first 1/4 cup of onion in a large skillet until
the meat is brown. Drain off excess fat. Remove from the heat and stir in the
remaining ingredients for the Meat Filling. Fill the uncooked manicotti shells,
packing the filling into both ends. Place the shells in an ungreased baking pan,
13x9". Heat the oven to 375~. Heat the undrained mushrooms and the remaining
ingredients for the Tomato sauce except the Parmesan Cheese to boiling, stirring
occasionally. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 5 minutes. Pour
the sauce over the filled shells. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake until
the shells are tender, 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours. Sprinkle with the cheese and cool
5-10 minutes before serving.
