Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Shells

4.6 oz Jumbo Shells
2 large egg Eggland's Best Egg
12 oz Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
56 7/10 grams Italian Style with Parmesan and Romano Cheeses
0.75 cup Cheese Mozzarella Shredded

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Shells

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and the pasta shells to the water. Boil the pasta shells until they are tender, but still a little firm (al dente), about 10 minutes. Meanwhile make the filling.When pasta is done, drain the shells, run under cold water to stop the cooking process and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl stir together: the ricotta cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and parsley or mint. Pour about 1 cup of pasta sauce into a 9x12 casserole dish. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the ricotta filling into each cooked pasta shell. Place the filled shells, side by side, (three lengthwise rows of 6 shells per row), into the casserole dish. At this point, the dish can be made and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

  3. Spoon the remaining pasta sauce on top of the shells and bake uncovered until bubbly, about 30 minutes. If using refrigerated shells, allow 40 minutes baking time.
