Homemade Stuffed Shells


  • 1 box of large shells


  • 1/2-1 pounds ground beef and/or loose Italian sausage
  • your favorite red sauces (I like to use DelGrosso's sauces)


  • 2 containers of cottage cheese (16oz)
  • mozzarella cheese
  • parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • garlic
  • parsley
  • oregano 


  1. Brown the ground beef in a frying pan and drain off the grease.
  2. Combine the cooked meat with the red sauce into a crock pot and cook as long as you would like, the longer it cooks the better it will taste :)
  3. While the sauce is cooking you can stuff the shells, it may take awhile
  4. Cook the shells per the directions on the box, be sure to add some salt so they do not stick together or break.
  5.  I don't like to drain them because they stick together sometimes that way, so I use tongs to pull them out one at time and put them on wax paper
  6. In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients for the stuffing and mix well. 
  7. Then stuff all the shells with about two spoonfulls of the mixture 
  8. Place stuffed shells in a deep baing dish and cover with the meat sauce 
  9. Bake at 350 degrees, covered
Cook for 30 minutes to an hour
Serve with garlic bread and a salad
**Make it healthier by using lean ground beef (90%) and use low fat or fat free cheeses**
