Shells – Cheese Filled – F Kotch


An old recipe for cheese filled pasta shells


How difficult is it to fill the shells?


Now this is a little more like it. Cheese filled shells can be so delicious and not boring at all! I’d imagine you want the shells to be parboiled, not completely soft so as to fill them without tearing them. I’m thinking sort of like manicotti.

Shells – Cheese Filled (F Kotch)

1 12 oz pkg shells (jumbo)

4 c Ricotta cheese

2 c (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

3/4 tsp oregano

3/4 c grated parmesan

1 T chopped parsley

1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs

1/4 tsp pepper

32 oz jar spaghetti sauce

(Cook shells) set aside

In a large bowl combine all ingredients & mix well. Lay a layer of sauce in a 13x9x2 pan. Fill shells. Place filled shells open side down in a single layer. Add more sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake 350º 30-35 min, serves about 10-12

  1. Just catching up – you could use a manicotti shell, but I used almost this same recipe for years – made a large batch – the shells were roundish. If you want to know which ones, call me . I would make up a large batch and then freeze them, taking only enough for us two. I loved them, they are kind of off the list now.
