Stuffed Shells

 Rob and I love stuffed shells (especially Rob). They take some time to make so it isn't my favorite dish to make. I like to make dishes that are super easy, fast, and taste great. That being said when I do find the energy to make stuffed shells the recipe makes enough that we can eat them for a few days so its not too bad :-) Enjoy!


Stuffed Shells


  • 1 (12 ounce) package jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (32 ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 8 ounces grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (28 ounce) jar pasta sauce
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. 
  3. Brown ground beef with minced garlic. Drain the fat and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix eggs, ricotta, half the mozzarella, half the Parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper until well combined. Stuff cooked shells with ricotta mixture and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  5. In a medium bowl, stir together pasta sauce, ground beef,  reserved mozzarella, and Parmesan. Pour over stuffed shells.
  6. Bake in preheated oven 45 to 60 minutes, until edges are bubbly and shells are slightly set.
