What a dish! Guess who liked this? Yep, the boys! The youngest son decided this was “acceptable” pasta in his eyes. This is my original recipe so if you make it and post about it, give me the credit ok? Thanks all.
Oh what do you think of the new theme of the blog? I’m trying to figure out how to change the theme and not lose the widgets. I want to upload a free template I found but it did not come with installation directions. Any wordpress users know how to do this? Please help!!!
Stuffed shells wwith sausage and cherry tomatoes
3/4 of a pound of medium shells-par boil for about 6 minutes, drain and cool
1 pound bulk sweet Italian sausage
1-14 ounce can of cherry tomatoes
28 ounce can of tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
salt and pepper
1 pound ricotta cheese
1 large egg
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Brown sausage and add in sauce, tomatoes, and seasonings. Simmer for 15 minutes. In the meantime, boil the shells for about 6 minutes and drain. Cool. Mix ricotta cheese, egg, parmesan cheese and parsley. Add a little olive oil to the bottom of an 13 X 9 baking dish. Pre-heat oven to 350. Stuff shells with ricotta mixture. Top with sauce and mozzarella cheese. Cover and bake 35-40 minutes.
*tip-I used a cake decorator to fill the shells as it was hard to work with medium sized shells. This made the job go faster.
