  • 2 cups ricotta cheese or cottage cheese*
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Ad

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (not the powdered stuff), grated
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 boxes jumbo pasta shells
  • spaghetti sauce

*I used cottage cheese for price reasons, you would need 2 tubs of the cottage cheese.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare your pasta shells, bring water to a boil, then add pasta shells cook for about 15 minutes, til just before they are soft.

Prepare your cheese filling. Beat eggs in a bowl and add all of your cheeses and spices. Mix well.

Using a tablespoon, stuff your shells with the cheese mixture Using a casserole dish cover bottom lightly with some spaghetti sauce. Place your filled shells in the bottom of the casserole dish. (I use 2 casserole dishes). Cover your filled shells with spaghetti sauce. Bake for 45 minutes.

Everyone at our house enjoys good stuffed shells. I also use cottage cheese but I do drain it, and I add a single pimento-stuffed green olive to each stuffed shell. It seems to contribute a lot to the soft cheeses.

Thanks for sharing this special recipe.
