It's A Shell of An Idea



Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Shells

12 jumbo shells
2 cups cooked chicken, diced
1 egg
1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 jar marinara sauce

Cook pasta according to package directions.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all other ingredients except marinara sauce. Stir until well blended. In a 13 x 9 x 2 -inch baking pan, spread 1 cup of marinara sauce evenly. Fill each shell with chicken and cheese mixture (about 1 rounded tablespoon), and place open-side up in the baking dish. Pour remaining marinara sauce over the filled shells. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

This looks good. For me, I'd probably leave the chicken out-of course, I prefer the veggie way ;o)

Did you guys enjoy this??

We must be on the same wave length. I was thinking of making with veggies but went with the chicken instead. Tasted pretty good but next time the veggies will win out.
