  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella, shredded

Fork-free stuffed shells


  1. 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and fill a bowl with cold water. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain well, then place in the cold water until ready to stuff.
  2. 2Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add sausage, breaking it up as you brown for 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 more seconds. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the ricotta cheese.
