Recipe: Easy Stuffed Shells

Easy Stuffed Shells

1 package of cream cheese
1 lb. mozzarella cheese
1 egg
Jar of Spaghetti Sauce
1 box of large pasta shells
2 Tbsp of garlic cloves (minced)
Salt & Pepper

First of all I make this ahead of time, and either freeze it or put it in the fridge for the next night.
Mix together cheese, egg, s & p, and garlic.
Fill uncooked pasta shells with cheese mixture.
Place them in a cake pan (9X13) and pour spaghetti sauce over top.

The only reason I make it ahead of time is because I don’t cook the noodles, and when they sit in the sauce overnight they soften up a bit, and they are easier to fill when they are uncooked.
When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350F. Once oven reaches temp, cover the dish and bake for approximately 30 min. Uncover and top with more mozzarella, parmesan, and parsley, cook until cheese is melted.
I am sure you could use ricotta in this too, but I don’t just because it’s more expensive and I don’t care for ricotta much.

    We love cannelloni. This would be a great quick alternative. it looks pretty similar.

  2. Sherry Compton says:

    These sound delicious and decadent. Thanks for the tip on letting them soak overnight. Hadn’t thought about them being easier to fill that way but it makes sense.

  3. Sherry Compton says:

    The term stuffed has always intimidated me, but you give clear instructions. I like that easy is right in the title. These sound really good. Hope they are easy. Thanks.

  4. This seems so easy. I could make this during a hectic week night and still be very satisfied. This would be just as good as lasagna (which takes forever to make).

  5. Michelle F. says:

    yummy! love that you added cream cheese.

  6. This sounds so good and I had never thought about using cream cheese. And vegetarian. I love vegetarian recipes since I am one.
