Stuffed Cheese Shells

Printable Recipe

1 box jumbo shells
4 cups ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1 T. parsley
3/4 t. oregano
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
3 cups (about a 28 oz jar) Pasta sauce (or a double batch of homemade Marinara sauce)

Cook pasta, drain. Mix together cheeses, eggs, and spices. Pour some sauce into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Fill each shell with the cheese mixture. Put the filled shells in the pan. Cover with the rest of the pasta sauce. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan and bake at 375 for about 35-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Holly's Note: These freeze well too. (Thaw them and then add the sauce and bake as directed.)


  1. We love stuffed shells. Sometimes, to jazz them up, I will cook some ground beef in Ragu, and then drizzle it on top of the shells. It looks actually rather elegant and they are delicious.

    God bless.

  2. I SO agree about butter. Thanks for posting such great recipes!
