Stuffed Shells

The weekend is a great time to prepare a few meals. I wanted to make something we could have for dinner on Sunday and then freeze the other portion for a later date.

I decided to make stuffed shells because there are so many options for the filling. I selected Three Cheese Stuffed Shells and here is the recipe.

Three Cheese Stuffed Shells

1 32 0z of Ricotta Cheese
12 oz of Mozzarella, shredded
6 oz of Asiago, finely grated
4 oz of Parmesan,finely grated
2 eggs
1/3 cup fresh parsley chopped
1/3 cup fresh basil chopped
1 teaspoon nutmeg
dash of salt and pepper
Mix together and put in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Boil shells but don't over boil.

They are easier to stuff if you leave them aldente.

Pour sauce in the bottom of the baking dish you plan to use.

Stuff shells with cheese mixture and then lay in the baking dish.

Top with a little more sauce and parmesan cheese.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
