Three Cheese Stuffed Jumbo Pasta Shells

Total Time

These are a family favorite! I use my Spicy? Sweet? Marinara sauce Spicy? Sweet? Marinara Sauce for this recipe. This makes a full box of pasta shells, which is a lot, but this recipe is easily cut in half.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients, except pasta and 1/4 c Parmesan cheese in large mixing bowl.
  2. Mix well and fill each cooked pasta shell.
  3. Place in ungreased 11 by 17 pan.
  4. Cover w/ marinara sauce and then sprinkle with remaining Parmesan, cover w/foil, and bake in 350 oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Time does not include time to make marinara, but I cook mine as I make the shells so it really doesn't affect the time.
  6. Servings are a guess.

Recipe was fantastic and really easy. I'm a new chef and a mom of 2 little boys so things that are easy and fairly quick are the things for me. I took out basil (family isnt a fan) and added in bits of bacon, otherwise followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. Thank you for posting!

This recipe was really easy and very yummy. I apparently didnt chop the bay leaves up in small enough pieces so we didnt enjoy that part... In the future I would probably leave them out. Otherwise, this recipe is really good. Thanks for posting it!
