Perfect weeknight meal when you just don't have enough time to cook those darned shells! Perfect weeknight meal when you just don't have enough time to cook those darned shells!
Number of Servings: 8


    3/4 box jumbo pasta shells
    2 cups part-skim Ricotta cheese
    8 oz part-skim Mozzarella cheese
    1/2 teaspoon Parsley
    1/2 teaspoon Oregano
    1/2 teaspoon Salt
    1/2 teaspoon Pepper
    1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder/granulated garlic
    3 large eggs
    1 cup water
    1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce (I used Stop & Shop marinara sauce)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix: Cheese and spices and Large eggs together thoroughly. If mix is too runny, you may add in bread crumbs.
2. Fill shells with cheese mixture - for easier filling, I do it piped-frosting style: cheese-filled ziploc bag with the corner cut off! Place shells (open side up) in a 13x9x2 inch baking dish. After you have a full dish, you could put fresh sliced mushrooms on top of shells.
3. Cover with your favorite tomato-spaghetti sauce.
4. Carefully add in 1 cup of water to "steam" the shells as they cook.
5. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour until shells are tender.

*If desired, sprinkle with additional mozzarella cheese, and then bake uncovered for 10 more minutes until cheese is nice and melty. This isn't included in the nutritional information, but sure would be tasty!

  • Incredible!
    I only used the cooking instructions because I made these vegan, but they turned out amazing! Definitely a keeper. :) - 2/14/18

  • Very Good
    This worked really well. I didn't have nearly enough filling for a full 12 ounces of dry shells; I think the filling should be doubled for the amount of shells specified. Other than that, no complaints! I love shells, but hate having to boil them first.. good to know it's not necessary! - 9/11/12
