Cheese Filled Pasta Shells

Day 3 Week 1 of BM #55 - 

For Day 3 here is a simple and delightful pasta shell recipe where the shells are stuffed with cream cheese and shredded cheese.

I used a little of jalapeno cream cheese for the adults and the regular cream cheese for the kids.

Ingredients - 
Jumbo Pasta Shells 20
Oil 1 tsp
Salt 1 tsp
Cream Cheese 6 0z
Jalapenos Finely Chopped as needed (optional)
Shredded Cheese 1 1/2 cups
Pasta Sauce 1 cup

Cheese Filled Pasta Shells

Method Of Preparation -

Boil about 6-7 cups of water in a stock pot adding a teaspoon of Oil and a teaspoon of salt.

Gently add in the jumbo shells into the boiling water and cook them al dente for about 9-10 minutes.

Drain and set aside.

For the Stuffing - 
Mix the softened cream cheese, jalapenos (optional) and shredded cheese in a bowl.

Putting together the pasta -
Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Fill each of the shells with about 2 teaspoons of the stuffing and place them on a greased baking pan.

Generously add pasta sauce all over and top it with more shredded cheese. [I neglected to add the pasta sauce generously so the shells were a little dry]

Cover with a foil and bake for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.

Remove and serve warm.
