Stuffed Shells

This dinner was comforting and yummy. Stuffed shells were a perfect dinner to have while the weather is still cool at night. Soon it will be too hot for comfort food. I made one batch with marinara sauce and one with alfredo sauce that I’ll share with you later.

Stuffed Shells

1 jar marinara sauce
1 box jumbo shells
1 container ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded cheese, Italian cheese blend
1 lb. ground meat

Brown ground meat in skillet and drain.

Boil shells according to package.

Combine meat, ricotta, and 1 ½ cups of the shredded cheese in bowl.

Coat pan with a few spoonfuls of marinara sauce.

Stuff shells with ricotta mixture and place in pan.

Cover stuffed shells with marinara sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake shells at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes.

Serve with garlic bread and salad for a great meal.
