This is very easy to make if you can boil water! My sauce is excellent with this dish (Spaghetti Sauce Made With Pork Neck Bone! Italy 1870-1900!--Give it a try)!
- 14 large pasta shells
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 7 ounces ricotta cheese or 7 ounces cottage cheese
- 1⁄2 cup bacon, fried and drained
- 15 ounces your favorite spaghetti sauce
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 egg
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1⁄3 cup parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Boil shells for no longer that 6 minutes, remove from heat and drain, let cool to handle.
- In a large bowl beat egg, stir in Ricotta or cottage cheese.
- Add 3/4 of the mozzarella and 1/3 of the Paremesan cheese along with the chopped parsley,chop the bacon up in small pieces and add.
- Mix well together.
- Spread 4-5 tablespoons of sauce on the bottom of glass dish (13x9x2).
- Stuff shells with filling sprinkel with remaining cheese, add remainder of the sauce. Cover with aluminum foil about 30 minutes.
- Uncover and bake another 5 minutes without foil.
- Let stand 5 minutes and serve.
Very easy and yummy!! I made this exactly as stated, which I don't normally do, and it was really good! Thanks for the post. I'll be making this again.
