Beef Stuffed Shells
1/2 lb of ground beef
1 - 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese
fresh chopped parsley (this is important)
spaghetti sauce (see hot spaghetti recipe)
2 cups of mozz cheese
12 jump shells, partially cooked and drained.
Brown ground beef over medium heat, add onion and garlic powder and real parsley.
Transfer to a bowl and add ricotta cheese, sprinkle w/ parm and about 2/3 cup of mozz cheese. I kinda eyeballed it until I had a creamy, but not overly cheesy consistency.
Line a pan w/ a little sauce of then lay shells on top. Top w/ remaining sauce and then top w/ a ton of mozz cheese. Cheese is more of a star in this recipe so be liberal.
Bake for about 20-30 mins @ 350. Or until cheese is melty and a little brown.
I don't normally give a quantity for the spices because I like things really onioney and garlicey but I hate biting an onion and I hate chopping garlic. I know, I know...but whatever. I'm trying ok I had to chop the damn parsley.
