Chicken Stuffed Shells



15 each, Jumbo pasta shells, cooked until very al dente

2 grilled chicken breasts, shredded

1 tsp, Black pepper

1 tsp, Salt

1 T chopped basil

1 tsp Minced garlic

2 cups, Ricotta

½ cup shredded mozzarella  

1 T oregano

2 egg

24 oz, Marinara sauce

1 cup Parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Add shredded chicken, black pepper, salt, chopped basil, minced garlic, ricotta, mozzarella, oregano, and eggs to a medium sized bowl to evenly combine.

  3. Spoon the chicken cheese mixture into each jumbo pasta shell or pipe into each shell using a gallon ziplock bag. This is a great activity for kids to get involved in the kitchen, that is safe and fun.

  4. Once you’ve stuffed all the shells, place them into a lightly greased casserole dish. Pour the marinara sauce over the shells to cover and spread parmesan cheese across the top.

  5. Cover the pan with foil. Cook for 35-45 minutes. Broil for 5 minutes or until browned. Serve with fresh basil and more parmesan on top.
