RE: [frozen-assets] stuffed shells
- I make stuffed shells the exact same way I make lasagna... just put together
If I remember right I use (it's one of those memory recipes...)
1 container ricotta
1/2 C parmesan cheese
Cook shells, stuff with filling, put in pan (1 big or a couple little).
Cover with sauce and mozzarella cheese and bake until cheese melts.
I use a meat sauce, so I don't put meat in the shells. You could if you want
though, use cooked sausage or hamburger.

Subject: [frozen-assets] stuffed shells
Hi everyone I am new here. I would like to make the stuffed pasta
shells. Does anyone have a receipe for the stuffing . I would like
to stuff with the cheeses.
- See, this part has always bewildered me. My family is from Sigonella, Italy
We have stuffed our shells with beef, but typically, we use chicken. Most
people I talk with have never heard of stuffing the shells with chicken. Am
I the only odd duck here that does this?

- ReBecca, you are not the odd duck, I also stuff my shells with
chicken, cheese, some cream cheese peppers and onions and seasonings,
as a matter of fact that is what we had for dinner tonight, I put a
cheese sauce or white sauce on, I also stuff with beef , and use a
tomato sauce. carole
- I would love a recipe for chicken. I stuffed with cheeses because it was the
only recipe I had (and it was the same as mentioned above).
so please tell me what you use when you stuff it with chicken! :) so you
shred the chicken?

- ReBecca, I'd LOVE a recipe for stuffed shells with chicken! Have you got a
good recipe? I've got around 90 frozen stuffed shells in the freezer, but
would love to add chicken/crab to the next batch.

- You guys have talked so much about stuffed shell lately that I got energetic
and made 3 square pans of stuffed shells, one small rectangle pan of
lasagna, 3 quart bags of spaghetti sauce, and while I was at it, I made 3
bags of chili, too. I used Williams packaged chili seasoning mix...I don't
know why I hadn't thought about that when I asked the list not too long ago
for a good no beans chili recipe! Thanks everyone, you made things so much
Now that I finished all that cooking for the freezer today....I just need to
figure out something for dinner tonight!!! My husband was inspired by my
large pot of spaghetti sauce and made a TON of spaghetti noodles, and they
are pretty tender cooked...we have kids who don't like chewy noodles. So now
I just have to figure out what to put on them. I don't think I can get away
with Spaghetti sauce and noodles for the third time in a row!

- Well, I wing it because nobody taught me, and I never did look up a
recipe. So please understand the lack of exact measurements.
*about 1/2 of a 3 lb tub of Ricotta cheese
*1 to 2 eggs, depending on size (1 jumbo, 1 extra large, 1-2 large,
*2 medium...you get the idea...LOL)
a handful of superfine breadcrumbs (maybe 1/4 cup)
*some dried parsley - maybe a teaspoon or two - you'll have to
*a good handful of grated Romano cheese - probably 1/4 cup
*salt, to taste - I think I use about 1/2 tsp
*a pinch of cayenne, if desired
P.S. - you really can't mess it up
