When I’m short on time, seemingly that’s all the time, I still have to feed my family. Apparently, it’s a must. But in this crazy-paced life, regardless of the time I don’t have, I’m just not a fan of fast foods, so I’m always trying to find ways to get a nourishing meal on the table. Thankfully, I have a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to tasty shortcuts —including Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup. It’s my secret to giving tasty weeknight meals a boost of flavor.

As I was perusing my cupboard the other day, taking note of what I need to get, at the top of the list was Campbell’s Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup. It was then that my thoughts wandered off, and I started thinking of all the times growing up that my mom would stock the pantry and make sure she always had plenty of cans of Campbell’s Condensed Soups. From the holiday-favorite recipes to one of her amazing chicken recipes, I have seriously grown up with this versatile recipe starter in our pantry.

Nowadays, I’m adding more one-dish meals that start with Campbell’s Condensed Soups!

Vegetable ingredients for Manicotti
If you fancy something a little different with minimal work, then you should give this mushroom ricotta manicotti recipe a try. It may look tricky, but it is much simpler than you might think and is a great way to impress your dinner guests. This is a meatless/vegetarian version, but you can change it up by adding in shredded rotisserie chicken if you’d prefer. And because I adore mushrooms, I’ve upped the mushroom ante by adding in rich and flavorful Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup for an even creamier sauce to ensure that everyone enjoys a delicious meal. For the filling, I made my own easy homemade ricotta cheese. However, you can also find it pre-made at your local grocery store.

  6. Using a small spoon, gently stuff each manicotti shell with 2 - 3 tablespoons of mushroom ricotta mixture and place in a single layer over the Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup in the dish.
  7. Pour the remaining Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup over the top of the pasta shells, garnish with grated Parmesan and fresh thyme if desired, and bake in a 375°F preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until bubbly.
