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.
