12 stuffed shells




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Also preheat a medium skillet over medium-high heat and add sausage. Cook until slightly golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside in a large mixing bowl.
  • In the meantime bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add pasta shells. Cook just until el dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • In a small bowl combine ricotta and egg and mix well. Add it to the cooked sausage along with the arugula. Stir until evenly combined.

  • Garnish with minced basil.

<dd class=profile>My name is Jenn and I live with my boyfriend Josh along with our little girls, Kaia, who was born the summer of 2006 and , Marlee, who joined the family in sping of 2013...and I can't leave out our epileptic four-legged furry kid Raider. I began cooking around the age of twelve for my parents and self and since then have only grown to love the art even more! Since the age of fourteen I have worked in the food and beverage industry, mainly in restaurants creating within myself quite a little foodie monster. In April of 2007 I became a member of Cooking Contest Central where I began my recipe contesting. I have had quite a few wins so far and don't plan on stopping! My mantra is you can't win if you don't enter!</dd>
