Easy Cheesy Beef Stuffed Shells
- 16 Jumbo Pasta Shells
- 1 lb Ground Beef, Lean
- 3 cloves Garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, grated
- 1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 2 cups Pasta Sauce
- 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
Preheat Oven to 375° F.
Boil the Jumbo Shell noodles according to the directions on the box, drain and run under cold water. Set aside. Make sure they are only cooked to al dente, or they will rip and be difficult to stuff.
In a large bowl, mix ground beef, spices, garlic, parmesan and panko.
Stuff the shells with the ground beef mixture (Tip: use a cookie scoop!)
In a 9 x 11 baking dish, evenly spread 1 cup of the pasta sauce.
Place stuffed shells on top of sauce in baking dish.
Cover stuffed shells with remaining pasta sauce and top with mozzarella cheese.
Bake covered for 10 mins and then uncovered for 15 more mins. Use a meat thermometer to ensure beef is at least 160°F before serving.
