    HeatherFeather's Note:

    For nights when you are too tired to fuss much. Adapted from Woman's Day. The cook time includes 20 minutes for cooking the pasta shells - this goes even faster if you already have your shells cooked,& drained in advance. NOTE: You might not need all of the shells in the box - before cooking, lay out the dry shells in your pan first to see how many you will need and only cook that many.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 F and grease a 9x13" casserole; if you have not already done so, prepare pasta shells according to package directions and also brown your sausage, drain & crumble.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, all of the ricotta (use 2 cups if not using meat or if you like it very cheesey, even if you are using meat, otherwise use just 1 cup), as well as the parsley (reserving a small amount to garnish), egg, Parmesan cheese, garlic, nutmeg and black pepper.
    3. 3
      Pour sauce into the baking dish and then set the unfilled shells on top facing up so that you can fill them.
    4. 4
      Evenly portion out the crumbled sausage, if using, in the bottom of each shell.
    5. 5
      Spoon filling to a large ziptop plastic bag and snip off one corner.
    6. 6
      Pipe about 2 Tbsp filling into the each of the prepared pasta shells, or as much or as little as you prefer.
    7. 7
      Cover with foil and bake for 30-35 minutes or until sauce is bubbling under the foil.
    8. 8
      Remove foil, sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and bake, uncovered, for about 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
    9. 9
      Serve extra sauce from the pan on the side.

      My family really enjoyed this recipe, it is very tasty and simple to boot. I did not use parsley but opted for thawed and squeezed frozen spinich instead, also I could have sworn I had nutmeg but I didn't. We used sweet italian sausage and served with salad and garlic bread. Oh and I mixed the crumbled sausage right in with the filling and used a small spoon to stuff the shells, very easy.
