Chicken Stuffed Shells

The hubby loves stuffed shells- and I thought I would give this Chicken Stuffed Shells recipe a try. I got it from the Allstar Recipes on Now that's Whats Cooking. It was Ok- Hubby would give it a 6 out of 10.


15 jumbo pasta shells

2 tsp oil

2-4 cloves garlic

8 oz cooked chicken

15 oz fat free ricotta cheese

1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs

28oz marinara sauce

Salt & Pepper

1 tsp parsley

Parmesan cheese

I added some mozzarella cheese also

Heat oven to 400 degress. Spray large baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cook pasta shells according to directions and drain. Boil chicken and shred.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and garlic and cook for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in ricotta, breadcrumbs, parsley and salt and pepper.

Spread 1/2 Cup sauce in bottom of baking dish. Fill shells with chicken mixture and place in pan. Pour remaining sauce over shells ( I added mozzarella cheese to the top of this) Bake covered with foil for 15-2o minutes- remove foil and continue baking until cheese melts. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
