Italiano Sausage Stuffed Shells

Main Ingredient: Pasta

Yield: 5 servings


  • 20 jumbo pasta shells
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 hot Italian sausages
  • 1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1-1/4 cups nbsp;(5 oz.) Cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
  • 2 cups pasta sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cook pasta shells according to package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water, set aside.
  3. In a large pot, on medium heat, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes.

  6. Spread half the pasta sauce in a 13" x 9" oven proof casserole dish. Stuff each shell with the sausage/cheese mixture and place shells in dish open side up in a single layer. Spoon pasta sauce over the top and sprinkle with the remaining shredded cheese.
  7. Bake the shells for 30 minutes or until the shells are heated through and cheese is melted.
