Baked Cheese Stuffed Shells


18 Jumbo shells
2 cups Bolognese Sauce

2 cups ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and use to stuff pasta.
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions for al dente. Drain and place the shells on a kitchen towel to cool.

Spoon the sauce over the bottom of a casserole dish large enough to hold the stuffed shells in one layer.

Fill each shell with equal portions of the ricotta cheese mixture. Arrange the shells stuffed side up in the casserole. Sprinkle the tops with grated cheese. Cover the dish with foil.
Bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with extra cheese and serve.
