This looks like a nice, easy recipe! Yum!

Very good and fun to make.


A 12 oz. box of Jumbo Shells contains about 40 shells. This recipe is nearly a copy of the one on the back of the box of shells which I bought, but, with more realistic proportions of ingredients.

Is there anything I could substitute in place of the ricotta cheese. It can't be cottage cheese, either. Thank you!

No ricotta cheese ??? No cottage cheese??? IF you can not use either one then this recipe will simply not work will not come out right at all .. I use small curd cottage cheese for lasagna all the time I drain off most all the whey mash a little and add some sour cream before using for lasagna or stuffed shells I also add eggs and parmesan cheese HHmmmm GOOD!

Your recipes are over the top! I am a great-grandmother who just finished a dual masters degree in nursing and health care. I am moving from upstate New York back to Central Florida. Thank the Lord you are on the Internet. I can still see you daily! I have shared your recipes here in NY and am glad I can take you with me! While going to college here (online) I needed good recipes that did not require a lot of time. I have been doing a majority of the cooking and you have provided the variety and recipes I have needed. Your presentation on TV is awesome!

Yes, please provide nutritional information and serving sizes. My family uses the fundamentals of the Weight Watchers diet and I need that info to calculate the points per serving. Thanks.

IF you are on weight watchers diet you should be checking out all the recipes under diabetic recipes in the green banner at the top of this page every single recipe has all the nutritional information included That is your "special place" for people watching their weight counting calories or on a diabetic diet

OK, is one shell a serving size? or 3 shells like in the picture? Please help! And yes where are the calories, total fat, protein, sugar, ect. I would be great to have all that on every recipe! There is some who watched there weight and some that watch the carbs and sugars due to being a diabetic. Please consider. Thanks

is there somewhere to go that gives the nutritional information of the receipes? such as calories, sugars, carbs, etc.
