- box of large shell pasta
- large carton large curd cottage
- mozzarella, at least cup
- 1/2 tsp garlic
- (can sneak in some finely chopped, cooked broccoli or spinach)
- 1 can of your favorite spaghetti sauce
Boil noodles according to directions on box. Mix above ingredients (adjust amount of seasoning to your liking) and stuff individual shells. Place a small amount of sauce in bottom of pan so that shells don’t stick. Top with your favorite spaghetti sauce and a sprinkling of mozzarella. Freeze or bake at 350 degrees until bubbly (about 20-30 minutes. More if frozen).
I also like the alternate way of doing this in Once a Month Cooking. Stuff the shells, freeze them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Once frozen, move to a zip closing freezer bag – separate from the sauce. You can pull out as many shells as you need and make as large a casserole dish as you need.
Definitely a favorite.
