Stuffed Pizza Shells recipe

We made 3 pans of this last evening and was able to be a blessing to a couple families so they wouldn’t have to make dinner tonight.  It goes together quick and is a nice change from lasagna or pizza casserole.  Try it tonight with your family.

If you know me and my cooking, I cook by tasting everything to see how the flavors mold together, I suggest you do the same, experiment see what flavors and things you would like to add to this dish.


  • 1 lb ground beef with onion and garlic to taste
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 package of pepperoni cut up
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • flavorings, chopped onions, minced garlic, basil and oregano add all of these into it, start small and add more as you like
  • 1box jumbo shells
  • 1 jar of spaghetti sauce

start by browning your hamburger, at this point you can add onion and garlic.  Add 1/2 of a chopped onion and a Tablespoon of minced garlic as your meat is browing.Image00022

  1. I can’t wait to try this! Putting on my menu now.

  2. Do you bake it after you put in a pan? I’m teaching myself to cook and I don’t know much.

    • Yes put it in the oven just to melt the cheeses together. About a 1/2 hour at 350 degrees. covered in foil to prevent from losing all the liquid:)
