Super Shells

It seems we have been eating a lot of chicken lately, so in search of something a little different, I came across this recipe.  I knew reading it that it would be amazing.  Yummy!  This time, I used sausage and it turned out great!  

Super Shells


1 box jumbo shells, cooked according to package.  Set aside tossed in some olive oil so they don't stick together. 
1 lb. ground beef or Italian sausage or Turkey 
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup bread, torn into pieces
1 Tbsp. parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, reserving 1/2 cup
1 jar of pasta sauce

Preheat oven to 350º

Heat some oil in the skillet and add onions.  Cook unti tender.  Add garlic and cook about a minute.  Add meat and cook through, make sure you break it up into small pieces.  Set aside to cool.  

In a bowl, mix the bread, spices, eggs, milk and cheese.  Add in the meat mixture. 

Pour about half of the sauce in the bottom of the casserole dish, spread across the surface.  

Stuff the shells with the filling and place in the casserole dish.  Cover the shells with pasta sauce and sprinkle with reserved cheese.  

Bake for 40 minutes. 

*I used a small cookie scoop to stuff the shells.  Makes it easier than using a regular spoon.
