Stuffed shells are her specialty, and they quickly became my new favorite meal. I make it often for dinner guests or just if we want something that will yield a lot of leftovers. And I should add that they are ah-may-zing.
Mrs. G's Stuffed Shells - Printable version!
1 box Jumbo Shells
2 28 oz cans of tomato sauce (can use less if you aren't a huge sauce fan)
1 32 oz container of Ricotta cheese - we use part skim
2 cups Mozzarella cheese
|We're not going to use all that Mozzarella - I just buy in bulk ;)|
|I lurve me some pasta|
|Tomato sauce, egg, and both cheeses|
|It looks more appetizing in person, I promise|
|My assembly line|
|I'm drooling, seriously|
Pan #1 usually makes about 6 servings for us, and Pan #2 makes about 3. I should add that I eat 6-7 shells at a time. If you aren't a piggy like me, it will yield even more servings for you.
Aside from being delicious and easy, this meal is usually cheap, too. If I stock up when everything is on sale I can easily pull this off for less than $8 total.
Take that, everyone who doubted I could ever make anything edible :)
