Stuffed Shells in the Crock Pot

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, but stop and drain 2 mins. before the end of the suggested cook time. You want it tender but not completely cooked. Separate the shells on a cookie sheet or paper towel on the counter so they don’t stick together.
  2. Meanwhile, brown the beef, onion and garlic in skillet with salt, pepper, oregano and basil to taste.
  3. Drain and pour into mixing bowl.
  4. Add to the meat, cheese, bread crumbs, parsley and egg, mix well.
  5. Stuff the shells using a spoon and set aside, back on the cookie sheet or plate to make things easier.
  6. Pour 1 jar of sauce into the crock pot.
  7. Arrange the stuffed shells in the sauce.
  8. Pour the 2nd jar of sauce and top it off with Parmesan cheese and maybe some more Mozzarella.
  9. Cover and Cook on low for 4-5 hours.

This recipe accounts for 3 shells per person for 6 people. I usually have a little more ‘stuffing’ left over so I cook a few more shells.
