April writing...

My dear Husby has turned over a new leaf...he has been finding recipes and fixing them at home. He seems to really enjoy doing it, and I love hanging out in the kitchen with him and helping out!!! Wanna see what we are having tonight??

Oh yummm YESS! Chicken Stuffed Shells. This is a Cory found recipe. So after work we will venture through the cabinets to see what we need then head to store for the rest!! I am excited. This should be really yummy. Here's the recipe for any of you who may want to try it out...We will post our own pictures from our dinner!!


1 box jumbo uncooked pasta shells

6 garlic cloves (minced)

2 chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)

1 (30 oz) container ricotta cheese

1/3 cup Italian breadcrumbs

1 ½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 ½ teaspoons dried parsley

6 basil leaves (torn)

1/3 cup half and half

28 oz pasta sauce

¼ cup parmesan cheese

1 cup mozzarella cheese

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Cook pasta shells according to package directions. Rinse with cold water, separate and set aside.

Step 2: Combine garlic, chicken, ricotta cheese, bread crumbs, half and half, salt, pepper, parsley, and basil and parmesan cheese in a food processor. Process until combined. If you don’t have a food processor, mix well with a spoon.

Step 3: Pour half of the pasta sauce into the bottom of a large baking dish. Stuff shells 1 by 1 with the chicken/cheese mixture and place in rows into the baking dish on top of the sauce. Top the shells with shredded mozzarella and pour the over half of the sauce over the top of shells. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.(Makes 4 servings)
