DIRECTIONS

  • Cook shells 7-8 minutes until almost al dente. Drain and return to the pot. Drizzle with oil and toss.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Meanwhile, combine ricotta, salt, 1/8 tsp of pepper, egg yolks, and 1/8 cup parmesan.
  • Melt the butter in skillet over medium heat. Add the herb of choice and cook until butter is brown.
  • Spread 1/4 cup of the marinara sauce on the bottom of a baking dish or casserole.
  • Carefully spoon about 1 1/2 tbsp of the ricotta filling into each shell and place into the casserole dish.
  • Pour the rest of the sauce over the shells.
  • Combine the Parmesan cheese with 1/4 tsp pepper and sprinkle over the shells.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes--sauce should be bubbly. Remove foil and bake for 10 minutes until lightly golden brown.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
