For stuffed shells (or something like it). I want to make it for dinner tomorrow... but if you tell me there are a million steps and ingredients, I'll pass I want something that isn't hard to do, and have no idea how hard stuffed shells is to make. FYI, I don't consider lasagna difficult, not real easy, but not hard, so that can be your guideline for what's hard

Anyone have a good stuffed shells recipe? I'm craving a yummy Italian dinner for tomorrow, after I go to the store.

It's about 3 parts ricotta to 1 part shredded mozzarella cheese(that's cups, not lbs!). Sprinkle in some grated Parmesan, garlic powder, parsley and black pepper. You'll need to use one egg per lb of ricotta as a binding ingredient. It's really easy!

Yeah, Constance's recipe sounds great. And boil the shells first ...I like the big ones that look kind of like seashells And then fill them and cover them with sauce and more mozzarella cheese and bake them! Yummy!!

I have a good recipe~

2 cans artichoke heart or asparagus
1 cup Parmesean
1 lb shreaded mozz divided
8 oz of cottage cheese (or ricotta)
2 big cans spaghetti sauce
1 box shells

Cook up shells al dente

Toss everything except sauce in blender. Puree. Put mix in zip lock bag and refigerate until firm. Once shells are coohed and cool enough to handle snip off corner of baggie and squeeze filling into shells. Place some sauce in the bottom of a pan add shells when full. Cover with remianing sauce sprinhle with cheese and Parmesean. Cook for however long the box says.

This makes enough for two meals for me, DH a teenage boy and my toddler.

Heart burn variation. Instead of red sauce use 1 8oz jar pesto mixed with one cup cream.

We use the extra filling for a veggie dip it is excellent with red bell peppers.

I have the best recipe. I tried a bunch online and when none of them seemed right, I emailed the friend who brought them over for us after we had Asher. They are so yummy!

Stuffed Shells

1 pkg. (12 oz.) jumbo shells
1 jar pasta sauce (I make my own sauce)
1 egg
15 oz. ricotta cheese
8 oz. shredded mozzarella
C. parmesan cheese
2 tsp. parsley

Cook half box of pasta (approx. 20 shells) until tender, not soft. Rinse thoroughly, drain & cool.

Combine egg, ricotta cheese, 1-3/4 C. mozzarella, C. parmesan and parsley. Fill cooked shells with mixture. Spread pasta sauce in bottom of 9x13 pan and arrange shells seam-side down in pan. Top with remaining pasta sauce, mozzarella & parmesan cheese.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

You could also brown some ground beef or Italian sausage and add that to the mixture (if you want some protein). You can also make a double batch and freeze half -- they freeze well.

I love stuffed shells and will probably be making them soon, now that I realize their freeze potential! I make mine with chicken and spinach in them. It's a Weight Watchers recipe. I'll look it up and share if anyone is interested!
