Jumbo Stuffed Shells
This is another dish mom made us growing up. I'm not sure if she used Ragu, but it's a quick shortcut and it tastes so good, you can't tell a difference!
Jumbo Shells - prepare per pkg directions
1-1 1/2 lbs hamburger meat
small onion, diced
medium bell pepper, diced
minced garlic to taste
jar of mushrooms
16 oz cottage cheese
large jar of Ragu (save a little as extra topping)
Cook meat, garlic, bell pepper, onion, and mushrooms. Drain grease if necessary. Add cottage cheese and Ragu. Stir and turn eye off to allow mixture to cook a little. When noodles are done, drain and rinse with cold water. When they've cooled enough to handle, spoon mixture in. Cook in the oven on 425 for 20-25 minutes. Top with mozzarella and leftover Ragu.
Serve with garlic bread and salad.
