Ham Stuffed Manicotti

One word, "WOW"

14 Manicotti shells
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup butter
3 cups cubed ham
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
6 Tbsp butter
6 Tbsp flour
3 cups milk
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Cook manicotti as directed (half the time if freezing). Drain and set aside. Saute onion and garlic in butter. Add ham and cook for a few minutes. Set aside to cool slightly. Stir 1/3 cup parmesan cheese into ham mixture. In saucepan, melt 6 Tbsp butter. Stir in flour and heat until bubbles. Add milk and pepper. Whisk while cooking on medium high heat until thickened. Stir in Swiss and remaining parmesan cheese. Mix 1/4 of the cheese sauce with the ham mixture. Fill manicotti shells with ham mixture. (I like to use a baby spoon). If freezing, see directions below. Otherwise, spread half of the remaining cheese sauce in the bottom of a greased 9X13 pah. Place filled shells in pan and cover with remaining sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Freezing directions: Spread half of the remaining cheese sauce in bottom of a greased disposable pan. Place filled shells in pan and cover with remaining sauce. Cover and freeze.
