Stuffed Pasta Shells Bolognese is a tasty family dish. It’s all you need for meal with perhaps a side of bread.
To create this dish you will need some large pasta shells, one box will do. The shells are stuffed with a trio of cheeses – ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan, then baked in a bolognese sauce.
Fresh ingredients makes this dish marvelous in my view, so don’t let your ingredients languish in the fridge before using them. If you can get your hands on some fresh parsley and basil, then get some. You can create a chimichurri sauce with the parsley and pesto with the basil. Let nothing go to waste! However, if your option is dried herbs only, that’s fine too.
Stuffed Pasta Shells Bolognese is so tasty. I usually make this meal for two, even though the recipe serves four, just so I have leftovers for lunch the next day. If I’m honest, the leftovers serving is a little smaller than it should be as I’m prone to going in for a small second helping.
Admittedly, this dish requires some work. You’ll need a few pots and pans to bring the ingredients together, but the final step is a breeze. You simply pop it in the oven for a short spell to finish it off. The final result is awesome and well worth the effort.
Low fat ground beef works well for this recipe as there is enough fat in the cheese. You can also opt for low fat cheese if you’re concerned about calories. If you do, add a few more ounces of marinara sauce to the bolognese to compensate for the decrease in fat.
I love this dish, the combination of flavors are simple, but when melded together and placed in your mouth, something magical happens. Give this recipe a try and don’t forget to use fresh ingredients if you can.
