Cheesy Stuffed Shells with My Secret Tomato Sauce

What's not to love about stuffed shells? Loaded with cheese and tomato sauce, this pasta dish is a total crowd-pleaser. To change it up, you can add a little lean ground beef or different herbs to the sauce. Also, it's easy to double the recipe and freeze one batch.

  • Yield: Serves 10 (serving size: 3 stuffed shells)
  • Hands-on:12 Minutes
  • Total:1 Hour, 4 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 30 uncooked jumbo shell pasta (about 8 ounces)
  • 4 ounces shredded 6-cheese Italian-blend cheese, divided (about 1 cup)
  • 8 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Cook pasta in boiling water 8 minutes or until almost al dente. Drain. Rinse with cold water; drain.

3. Combine 1/2 cup Italian-blend cheese and next 6 ingredients (through ricotta) in a bowl. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese mixture into each pasta shell. Place shells, stuffed sides up, in a 13 x 9–inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour sauce over shells. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Italian-blend cheese. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

Tip: If you don't have any My Secret Tomato Sauce prepared, the Organic Tomato Basil Sauce from Whole Foods Market is a great go-to option.
