Three Cheese Stuffed Jumbo Pasta Shells

"These are a family favorite! I use my Spicy? Sweet? Marinara sauce recipe #125116 for this recipe. This makes a full box of pasta shells, which is a lot, but this recipe is easily cut in half."

Ready In:




  • Combine all ingredients, except pasta and 1/4 c Parmesan cheese in large mixing bowl.
  • Mix well and fill each cooked pasta shell.
  • Place in ungreased 11 by 17 pan.
  • Cover w/ marinara sauce and then sprinkle with remaining Parmesan, cover w/foil, and bake in 350 oven for 30 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Servings are a guess.

    These are great, thanks for posting this yummy recipe!!! It was easy. I used fat-free ricotta & mozzarella and it still turned out scrumpious!!!

    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!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it made enough for 3 meals for our family of 4. I did make a few changes by using only 1 container of ricotta cheese and substituted Gouda for the mozzarella cheese. I had a little chicken left from dinner the previous night and added that to the cheese mixture. I served this with a salad and some rolls and it was delicious. Thanks for posting this easy recipe.
