Recipe: Best Stuffed Shells

By Musicfairynj | Tina Patterson | 14 Jul 2019

Here is the most delicious recipe that I have ever used. This is for the best stuffed shells ever. My daughters godfather even approves and he is 100% pure Italian from Brooklyn. He has even used this in his restaurant. So I am very honored, but I wanted to share this tasty recipe with you. I recommend using my tomato sauce recipe with this. As always you can tweak this to your liking.

What you need:

1lb ground beef
1 large onion diced
1 clove of clove minced
1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
1 egg beaten
1 jar of spaghetti sauce (or you can use my Italian tomato sauce recipe)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese(I like to use fresh)
18 jumbo pasta shells(cook according to package)
salt and pepper

What to do:

Cook shells according to package directions.

Meanwhile in a pan brown ground beef,garlic and onion.(drain fat completely, let cool)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Combine meat, mozzarella cheese, egg, breadcrumbs, chopped parsley and season with salt and pepper.

Pour tomato sauce into bottom of a oven safe dish covering the bottom with a quarter of the sauce.

Stuff the shells with meat mix, then place into sauced dish.

Pour remaining sauce over the shells.

Dust it with Parmesan and mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or til the cheese has melted.

*You can do many differences to this recipe, the only thing I suggest is when you put it in the oven you really don't have to make sure it browns just make sure it is melted.
