Ingredients

  • 12

    ounces jumbo pasta shells

  • 1 1/4

    cups mozzarella cheese, shredded (Reserve 1/4 cup)

  • 1

    cup parmesan cheese, grated

  • 2

    lbs ricotta cheese

  • 4

    large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 1

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1

    tablespoon dried parsley

  • 8

    ounces spaghetti sauce (jarred or homemade)

  • fresh basil, chopped, for garnish

Directions

In an 8 quart pot, bring water to a boil and cook shells for 8 minutes or until al dente. Drain and cool immediately with cold water. Drain and place open side down on paper towels. In a medium bowl, combine the rest of ingredients except the spaghetti sauce. Reserve the 1/4 cup of Mozzarella. Place a thin layer of spaghetti sauce into the bottom of a 12 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spoon the cheese mixture into each pasta shell and place open side up, in a single layer, in prepared pan. Pour the rest of sauce over the stuffed shells. Loosely cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. During last 5 minutes of baking, remove foil and sprinkle remaining Mozzarella cheese on top. Bake 5 more minutes. Garnish with fresh chopped basil.
