One woman's foray into cooking for herself, for her family, and for her friends. It's not always picture-perfect, sometimes a little messy, but it's always delicious. Join me in exploring new recipes, savoring the "résultats" and learning from the "erreurs".
Another use for that cheese filling that I use for lasagna and manicotti - stuffed shells! When I made the sauce, I sliced up some Italian sausage that I had cooked with peppers and onions last night and served on homemade bread. After boiling the shells and making the sauce, I put the cheese filling into a resealable bag and snipped the corner so I could pipe the filling into the shells. I spread some of the sauce on the bottom of a baking pan, layered the stuffed shells, spooned a little sauce over the shells, then sprinkled grated mozzarella and parmigiana over the top and baked at 375 F. for 25 minutes, until the cheese was melted and a bit bubbly. Put a little sauce in the bottom of a shallow bowl and place three shells on top. Dinner is served!
