Easy Cheese Stuffed Shells
EASY STUFFED SHELLS
1 container ricotta cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (reserve 1/2 cup for topping)
1 package jumbo shells
2 TBSP parsley
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1 jar marinara sauce
Cook jumbo shells according to package directions.
Combine ricotta, Parmesan, 2 cups mozzarella, and seasonings. Set aside.
Lightly spray a 9x13 baking dish. Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce in a thin coat along the bottom. Stuff shells with cheese mixture and place open side up in the baking dish. Evenly pour remaining marinara on stuffed shells and sprinkle with the last 1/2 cup grated mozzarella. Bake uncovered at 350 Degrees F 20-30 minutes, or until bubbly.
This can be made the night before and refrigerated until cooking. Baking time will increase.
The stuffed shells can also be layered in a crock pot and cooked on low 2-4 hours.
