Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Stuffed Shells

9 times out of 10, if I ask Hubby what he wants for a special occasion meal, his answer will be these stuffed shells.  A mix of meat and cheese make this a huge recipe.  Make one pan to cook right away, put the second pan in a foil pan, cover tightly and freeze for future use.

  1 Box Jumbo Shells                                                                1 Cup Italian flavored bread crumbs
  4 Cup Ricotta                                                                         1 Tbl parsley
  2 Cup Mozzarella                                                                   3/4 Tsp Oregano
  3/4 Cup Parmesan                                                                 1/2 Tsp salt
  4 Large eggs                                                                         1/4 Tsp pepper
  1 Lb ground pork                                                                   56 Oz spaghetti sauce
  1 Lb ground beef                                                                    

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cook shells according to package directions and spread on foil or wax paper to cool. Brown beef and pork in skillet; drain. Combine Ricotta, Mozzarella, Parmesan, eggs, pork, beef, bread crumbs, parsley, Oregano, salt and pepper. Spread a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan. Fill each shell with meat and cheese mixture. Place in the pan, opening down. Cover with remaining sauce and aluminum foil. Bake for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Makes 2 pans. Any leftover meat and cheese mixture can be mixed with spaghetti sauce and kept for a later meal.
