  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 14.5 ounce Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce 1 can, 2 if you want it saucier
  • 16 ounces Penne Pasta
  • 2 1/2 cups Colby-Jack cheese shredded
  • Parsley for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook penne, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. Brown the ground beef and ground pork sausage, and drain off the fat.
  • Add the onion, and green bell pepper, into the hot skillet and cook 3-5 minutes until fragrant.
  • Stir in Manwich Original Sloppy Joe Sauce; reduce heat and simmer until heated through, about 5-10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cooked penne, half of the cheese, and all of the ground meat and Manwich mixture. Stir together.
  • Pour into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with the remaining half of the cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley
