Ingredients

for 4 servings

  • 1 pt ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Mix all the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, garlic, basil, chili flakes (optional), salt, and pepper until smooth.
  3. Unfold a jumbo shell, turning it inside out, and gently fill it with 1-2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture. Refold the shell and set aside. Repeat with the rest of the pasta shells.
  4. In a circular dish, place a layer of marinara sauce that completely covers the bottom of the pan. Place the shells, cheese side up in the pan in a spiralling pattern.
  5. Pour a little extra marinara sauce within the spiral and top the whole pan with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is a golden brown.
  7. Pull apart with your fingers.
  8. Enjoy!
