Company is coming…what do I serve for dinner? This is usually the first question I ask myself when we invite guests to our home. One of my go-to dinners is Italian Stuffed Shells.
- It is the type of recipe that can easily be doubled or tripled.
- It can be made in advance of guests arriving so that I’m not cooking at the last minute.
- If there are any leftovers, this dish freezes very well.
- So far, everyone that I have served this to has loved it!
**I have included my recipe for tomato sauce. This recipe for stuffed shells can be made even easier by using a good jarred spaghetti sauce.**
When I was younger cook, I was a bit intimidated by this dish. I thought it was a complicated recipe and I was fearful that it wouldn’t turn out. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this is to make.
For the homemade sauce, saute’ one tablespoon of olive oil…
Some of the ingredients for the cheese filling.
Here is a tip for filling your shells:
Fill a ziplock bag with the cheese filling mixture…
Pour 3/4 of a cup of tomato sauce and spread into the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking dish.
Doesn’t the finished dish look delicious? It really was – if I do say so myself. 🙂 Our guests loved it too!!
