Ricotta Stuffed Shells


1/2 box Jumbo shells (approx. 16 shells)

1 cup Mozzarella cheese shredded

16 ounces Ricotta cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 egg

1/2 Tablespoon parsley

1/2 Tablespoon basil

1 jar spaghetti sauce (24-26 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350(F) degrees. Cook pasta according to package directions (~10 minutes). Once cooked, run cold water over them, until cool to touch.

While the pasta is cooking, combine cheeses, egg, parsley, and basil in a bowl until well mixed. Then, refrigerate until pasta is ready. Spread 1/3 of jar of spaghetti sauce in bottom of 13″ x 9″ baking dish.

Fill each pasta shell with as much cheese mixture as will fit (about 1-2 tablespoons each), and set it in the baking dish. Using remaining spaghetti sauce, spoon 1-2 tablespoons of sauce onto each shell. Optionally, top each shell with a sprinkle of mozzarella or parmesan cheese.

Cover with foil and bake 30-35 minutes.
