Easy Ricotta Stuffed Shells Recipe

Print Friendly


I have been making this for a couple of years now and it is still a family favorite! It is so simple and delicious. Even my little picky eaters will lick their plates clean!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (12 oz) package jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (15 oz) container low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 (16 oz) low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 8 ounces grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (28 ounce) jar pasta sauce
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms

Directions

  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. In a large bowl, mix eggs, ricotta, cottage cheese, half the mozzarella, half the Parmesan, Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper until well combined. Stuff cooked shells with ricotta mixture and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together pasta sauce, mushrooms and reserved Parmesan. Pour over stuffed shells. Then sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella cheese on top.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 45 to 60 minutes, until edges are bubbly.              

Serves about 10

    I have been stocking my freezer with your recipes and so I’m preparing a lot at a time. Thank you!
    A time saver with this one was to dump all of the filling ingredients into a gallon bag, mix it around, and them pipe it into the shells just like a pastry bag.

    This item was posted on your 50 freezer meals post. How would you make this a freezer meal? Would you just store the stuffed pasta and sauce separately or freeze them together and then reheat?

    Comparing this to the Mexican stuffed shells, it appears you cook this one, then freeze, but freeze the mexican stuffed shells before cooking. Is this correct? Why are they different; they seem like similar recipes?
