Stuffed Baked Paccheri

This stuffed baked paccheri pasta is a twist on the classic Italian baked pasta dish where large tube pasta is filled with a mixture of ricotta cheese, broccoli and Parmesan then topped with an easy white sauce and baked. It’s pure comfort food!

I have never met an Italian baked pasta dish that I didn’t love! Whether it’s creamy cheesy baked pasta or a traditional lasagna recipe, they are all cozy and delicious.

This stuffed baked paccheri pasta is stuffed with a cheesy broccoli filling then topped with a white sauce and Parmesan cheese and baked until golden and bubbly. It’s so satisfying.

You could add some meat, but on its own it’s a wonderful meatless meal with home cooked Italian flavor that is so good bite after bite!

  • 12-14 ounces paccheri cooked al dente (about 7 ounces dry)

Broccoli Filling
  • 1½ pounds broccoli
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¾ cup ricotta cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 1-2 dashes pepper or to taste

White Sauce
  • 1½ tablespoons butter
  • 1½ tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1-2 pinches salt
  • 1½ cups milk (2% or whole milk)
