Cheese Stuffed Shells with Alfredo Sauce on top is comfort food your family will LOVE. Try serving it with a salad and garlic bread.
One of my husband’s favorite meals is Cheese Stuffed Shells with Alfredo Sauce. When I made it for him recently, I realized that I’ve never shared the recipe on my blog. So, I snapped a couple of pictures while my family hungrily waited for their dinner.
Olive Garden used to have a dish called Manicotti Formaggio that had manicotti (large tube-shaped noodles) filled with a cheesy mixture of ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella. Brian always ordered it when we ate there and was disappointed when it was taken off the menu.
This recipe for Cheese Stuffed Shells with Alfredo Sauce has the same kind of filling, but we make it with alfredo sauce instead of a tomato sauce.
Cook one box of jumbo shells according to the instructions on the package.
While they are cooking, prepare the cheese mixture. Stuff the cooked shells with the cheese mixture using a large spoon. I was able to fill about 3/4 of the shells.
Put the shells into a greased 3-quart casserole dish or 9×13 inch pan.
Add the alfredo sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella. Cover with foil and bake for 30-35 minutes until bubbly.
Garnish with crushed black pepper and fresh parsley.

Could you prep this a day ahead and then bake the next day?
Yes, you can prep this ahead of time. Store it in the refrigerator overnight and place it on the counter while preheating the oven. It may take a little longer to bake depending on how cold it is when you put it in the oven.
Sounds delicious, I’m thinking about chopping up some spinach to add to the ricotta .
That’s a great idea! I’m going to try that the next time I make it!

I just fixed this with the assistance of my 8 year old and my boys loved it! They even ate the salad. Wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing.

These stuffed shells look stunning! I love stuffed shells so much and recently tried some with alfredo sauce for myself too – your cheese filling looks delicious though!
