Classic Stuffed Shells

Classic Stuffed Shells

Classic Stuffed Shells made with flavorful three cheese ricotta filling and homemade marinara sauce. This stuffed shells recipe is extra cheesy and made with fresh herbs and garlic flavors. The whole dish will take about 45 minutes to prepare but the shells can also be stuffed ahead of time.

So much comfort in one easy pasta dish. Jumbo pasta shells are stuffed with a delicious three cheese mixture of ricotta cheese, shredded whole milk Mozzarella cheese, and fresh grated Parmesan cheese. To give the filling some extra flavor, I love to add some fresh herbs like basil and parsley. Don’t forget a dash of oregano and some fresh garlic.
