  • 24-30 Jumbo Pasta Shells depending on how many will fit in your pan
  • 15 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 3/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Parsley chopped
  • 9 Fresh Basil Leaves chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 28 oz Marinara Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Place the shells in the water and cook 3 minutes less than the cook time listed on the package.  Drain the shells and rinse with cool water.
  • Spray a 9X13 pan with non-stick spray and then spread 1/2 of the marinara sauce at the bottom of the pan.
  • In a medium size bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, minced garlic, parsley, basil leaves, salt and pepper.  Stir to thoroughly combine.
  • Then spoon the cheese mixture into the shells and place the shells in the 9X13 pan on top of the sauce.
  • Pour the remaining marinara sauce on top of the shells and top with the mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes until hot and the cheese is fully melted.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
