Stuffed Shells Recipe

This stuffed shells recipe is a nice vegetarian meal for kids. And it can be made ahead and frozen for later, too.

I like to serve these stuffed shells with Caesar salad and Italian bread.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 12 oz. box jumbo pasta shells
  • 3 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 15 oz. container ricotta cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Prepare pasta according to package directions for al dente. Lay a sheet of waxed paper or plastic wrap over a baking sheet. Spread drained pasta on prepared sheet while you prepare the filling.

  3. Spread about 3/4 cup of the spaghetti sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.

  4. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Stir in ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.

  5. Spoon ricotta cheese mixture into a gallon-sized zipper-sealed plastic bag.

  6. Cut off the tip of one bottom corner of the plastic bag. Pipe filling into shells, and lay shells over the spaghetti sauce in the dish.

  7. Spoon remaining spaghetti sauce over shells. Top with shredded parmesan cheese.

  8. Bake 20-30 minutes until cheese is melted.
