Happy new year everyone!! We made it to 2018. We must be grateful to be alive. I for one am grateful for many things. I have a brand new 2018 car,and at the moment I am undergoing therapy 2x a week. I am gradually getting better,but it will be a journey to be back to myself. I have faith it will be all over soon.
Today is the 3rd day of the year,and I decided to make Stuffed Shells as my first home cooked dinner for 2018!
To be honest, pasta is one of my favorite dinners…and I was in the mood for love. ❤❤❤
The shells were cooked with salted water which came to a rapid boil..and they cooked in about 10 minutes. Drain the shells and set aside.
I cooked ground sirloin which I seasoned with Italian herbs,and I mixed it with fresh organic basil and fresh tomatoes. I drizzled some Cabernet Sauvignon into it too. Why not???!!!
Once done,I set it aside.
Then, in a bowl, I mixed 32 oz of Ricotta cheese,2 eggs, Italian herbs,himalayan salt,fresh nutmeg,2 cups of shredded mozzarella,and 2 cups provolone cheese. In my opinion, there is never enough cheese! Once it is mixed,set aside.
Obtain a square pan and spread your favorite sauce all around the bottom of pan. Go ahead and fill each shell with a teaspoon and 1/2 of the meat and the cheese filling..place on the square pan. Cover with your favorite sauce,and sprinkle cheeseee and parsley with green onions.
Make sure you heat oven at 375 degrees.
Once you are done assembling pan,place the square pan covered in aluminum into the 375 degrees oven for 45 minutes…or until cheese is melted.
Please do not drool…..
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018
