Pasta, beef and cheese are the foundation of many crowd-pleasing dinners: spaghetti and meatballs, pasta Bolognese and these top-rated manicotti, this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. Giada De Laurentiis stuffs large tube-shaped noodles with a mixture made from ground beef and three cheeses — ricotta and mozzarella for rich creaminess, and nutty Parmesan for a welcome salty bite — and covers them with her favorite bottled sauce. Before baking it, she tops the dish with another layer of mozzarella and Parmesan, which will begin to bubble in the oven.
