Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken shredded or chopped
  • 15 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons basil dried
  • 1 teaspoons parsley dried
  • 2 cups cream whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 12 ounces jumbo pasta shells 1 package, weight is approximate
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450ºF. 
  • Boil jumbo shells until just shy of al dente, about 3 minutes short of the full cooking time listed on the package. 
  • Combine chicken ricotta cheese, egg, and spices together. Set aside. 
  • Combine cream, parmesan cheese, and garlic. Set aside. 
  • In a 9x13 pan (see note), pour about 1/2 cup of the cream sauce. 
  • Fill each shell with about 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture, dividing it up evenly between all, or most of, the shells. 
  • Place the shells, open side up, in the pan in a single layer. 1 package is about 20 shells.  
  • Pour remaining cream sauce evenly over the top. 
  • Top with mozzarella cheese and cover with foil. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the foil. Continue baking until bubbly all the way through and light brown on top, about 10 more minutes. 

Notes

A 9x13 pan or a pan close to that size will work best for this recipe. An 8x8 pan is a bit too small to fit all the shells and sauce.
