PAOW! “Sausage” Stuffed Shells


16 oz PAOW! Sausage-Flavored Pieces
24 jumbo pasta shells cooked according to package directions
15 ounces ricotta cheese
3 c. shredded mozzarella cheese divided use
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg
1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
3 c. marinara sauce divided use
2 tbsp. parsley chopped
cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9″x13″ baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Spread 1 1/2 cups of the marinara sauce in an even layer in the bottom of the pan.
  3. Place the ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning, egg, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Stir to combine.
  4. Fill each shell with the ricotta mixture and place in the baking dish.
  5. Spoon the remaining marinara sauce over the shells, then sprinkle the other 1 1/2 cups of cheese over the top.
  6. Cover the dish with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover the pan, then bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
  7. While stuffed shells are cooking in the oven, heat up a non-stick sauté pan and add 2 tbsp of oil on medium high heat. Add the PAOW! Sausage and sauté on all sides until you see a nice golden color, 5-6 minutes.
  8. Remove stuffed shells from oven and top with PAOW!
  9. Sprinkle with parsley, then serve.
