Stuffed Meat Shells



Ingredients
  • 1 box large pasta shells
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb bulk sausage
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup flavored dry bread crumbs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 t. oregano
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 3 cups (28 oz jar) Pasta Sauce
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook pasta, drain.
  2. Cook sausage and beef together until no longer pink. Drain.
  3. Mix with eggs, bread crumbs, cheese, onion, and spices.
  4. Pour some sauce into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
  5. Fill each shell with the meat mixture.
  6. Put the filled shells in the pan.
  7. Cover with the rest of the pasta sauce.
  8. Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake at 375 for about 35-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
Holly's Note:
These freeze well. (Thaw them and then add the sauce and bake as directed.) This is truly one of our absolutely favorite meals. I prepare it for guests and it's always a hit. Freezing these shells has saved me so many nights when I don't have dinner planned. I can just pull them out of the freezer, dump them in a pan, add sauce and bake.
