How To Make Pull-Apart Stuffed Pasta

Pull-Apart Stuffed Pasta


·         1 pint ricotta cheese
·         1 cup mozzarella cheese
·         1 cup Parmesan cheese
·         1 tablespoon dried oregano
·         2 cloves garlic, minced
·         1 tablespoon dried basil
·         1 teaspoon red chili flakes (optional)
·         Salt, to taste
·         Pepper, to taste
·         1 pound jumbo pasta shells, cooked
·         Marinara sauce, to taste
·         Shredded mozzarella, to taste


1.    Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

2.    Mix all the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, oregano, garlic, basil, chili flakes (optional), salt, and pepper until smooth.

3.    Unfold a jumbo shell, turning it inside out, and gently fill it with 1-2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture. Refold the shell and set aside. Repeat with the rest of the pasta shells.

4.    In a circular dish, place a layer of marinara sauce that completely covers the bottom of the pan. Place the shells, cheese side up in the pan in a spiralling pattern.

5.    Pour a little extra marinara sauce within the spiral and top the whole pan with mozzarella cheese.

6.    Bake for 15 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is a golden brown.

7.    Pull apart with your fingers and enjoy!
