Instructions

  • Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick vegetable spray. 
  • Add salt and oil to a large pot of water.  Bring to a boil.  Add the jumbo pasta shells, making sure that none of the shells stick together.

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, mozzarella, eggs, and pepper.  Stir until thoroughly blended. 
  • Remove a single shell from the water.  Shake off the excess water. 
  • Place a heaping teaspoonful of cheese filling into the shell.  Place into the prepared pan. 
  • Repeat with remaining shells. 
  • Cover shells with the pasta sauce.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.  Remove from oven and top with additional mozzarella cheese.  Serve warm.
