Vegetarian Stuffed Shells for #WeekdaySupper

Sunday Supper MovementWe have been busy around here with a couple of birthday's just around the corner and I have been looking for easy meals to make during the week.  Just another reason why I love #WeekdaySupper so much - dinner will never ever have to be boring again...

I am one of the contributors this week and I bring you easy, delicious Vegetarian Stuffed Shells.  The dish fits into the diet plan our kids follow but it is not dairy free; yes lactose free but not dairy free.   This dish is easily prepared ahead of time, or prepared in 30 minutes before you pop it in the oven.  Serve it with a big side salad and you are all set for dinner.

Vegetarian Stuffed Shells

  • app. 1/2 box of Jumbo Pasta Shells, cooked al dente

  1. Cook pasta al dente according to box directions
  2. Spread a think layer of pasta sauce into a large baking dish {about 1/3 of the jar}
  3. Mix ricotta with garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, 1/2 C Parmesiano, 3/4 C Emmenthaler, and parsley.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste
  5. Break the eggs into the filing stir until it is well mixed through
