Stuffed Shells III

This recipe is a hit wherever you go. It is a very rich and cheesy meal and looks like a deep-dish pizza when done. I altered what I was originally given because I did not like cottage cheese and added other ingredients that I thought it deserved.

  • Yield: 10 servings
  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Cook time:1 Hour


  • 1 (12 ounce) package(s) jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (32 ounce) container(s) ricotta cheese
  • 1 pound(s) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 8 ounce(s) grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon(s) dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper
  • 1 (28 ounce) jar(s) pasta sauce
  • 8 ounce(s) sliced fresh mushrooms


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

3. In a large bowl, mix eggs, ricotta, half the mozzarella, half the Parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper until well combined. Stuff cooked shells with ricotta mixture and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish.

4. In a medium bowl, stir together pasta sauce, mushrooms and reserved mozzarella and Parmesan. Pour over stuffed shells.

5. Bake in preheated oven 45 to 60 minutes, until edges are bubbly and shells are slightly set.
