Stuffed Shells (Serves 2-4)

For most of you, this means a pasta filled with a mixture of cheese.  I can assure you that there isn’t a lot of cheese in this recipe.

  • 12 uncooked jumbo shells
  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 15 oz can of seasoned tomato sauce
  • shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven to 350F.  You’ll need one 8×8 cake pan or glass casserole dish.

Cook 12 jumbo shells according to directions. Drain pasta and allow to cool.

Brown 1/2 pound of ground beef (the leaner the better) in a 10 or 12 inch skillet.  Turn off heat and stir in 1/8 cup of seasoned dry bread crumbs; mix until breadcrumbs are thoroughly moistened.

Spread about 1/3 of the can of seasoned sauce into square dish.  Shake dish to assure an even coating of the bottom of the dish.

Spoon meat mixture into shells.  Arrange them into a 3 by 4 pattern. Spread remaining sauce over shells.  Top with shredded mozzarella cheese.  Cover dish with aluminum foil and place in oven.

Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes.

Serves 2-4 people depending on appetite.
