We are big lovers of spaghetti and lasagna in this house. Mom decided today that we should try our hand at stuffed shells. I figured it couldn’t be any more work that lasagna so why not? Turns out it was pretty easy and tasted great! Here is what we did.
1 box large shells
5 links hot Italian sausage with the casing removed
2 lbs hamburger
2 cans hunts spaghetti sauce
2 lbs shredded mozzarella
32 oz ricotta cheese
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Boil large shells according to package directions
Brown sausage and hamburger and drain. Add to sauce and let simmer.
Put a layer of sauce in a large baking dish
Mix the ricotta, egg, and Parmesan cheese together
Fill each shell with cheese mixture and place in baking dish
Once the pan is full, pour sauce over the shells, top with mozzarella cheese and cover with foil. Place in the oven set at 350 for 1 hour. Let stand for 10 min and enjoy! Place leftovers on foil and make serving size pouches to reheat in the oven for easy cooking nights!
