These shells are so easy to make and super delicious!!! I love to have a batch of these on hand to pop in the microwave for a quick after school snack or to try and fill the stomach of a 12 year old pre- teen that never seems to get full. (forgot to take a photo before everyone dug in, but you get the idea)
1 package of shell noodles
pasta sauce of your choice
Mozzarella cheese (about 1/2 cup)
1 container of Ricotta Cheese (I used lo-fat)
Cook the shells according to the package instructions. I add a little oil to the water as it starts to boil and before adding the noodles to keep them from sticking. Drain the noodles and let them sit for a while to cool down before handling them so you don’t burn your hands.
Once the noodles have cooled a bit. Spray a casserole dish with non stick cooking spray and pour about a 1/2 cup of the pasta sauce in to cover the bottom. Then put about a 1/2 tablespoon of cheese in each shell and make a single layer in your casserole dish.
Cover lightly with foil (try to make sure the foil does not touch the cheese so that it won’t stick – you can lightly spray the foil with cooking spray – this helps as well) and place in the oven at 425 degrees for 40 – 45 minutes or until cheese is melted and shells are warmed through.
