Did someone say pizza? Magic words in this house! I love stuffed shells and this was a new recipe that I hadn't tried yet. It turned out great and everyone loved this pizza style pasta dish!
Pizza Stuffed Shells
(Recipe found at spendwithpennies.com via Pinterest)
15-18 jumbo pasta shells
1/2 pound ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced
1 teaspoon oregano
4 ounces pepperoni, chopped into fourths
1 green pepper, diced
1 large tomato, diced
1 cup pizza sauce
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded and divided
Preheat oven to 350. Cook shells al dente according to package directions. Drain and set aside to cool. Brown ground beef, onion and garlic until no longer pink. Add 3/4 of the pepperoni and cook 3 minutes. Add green pepper, oregano and tomato. Cook 3 minutes or until green pepper is softened. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Fill each shell with pepperoni mixture and place in baking dish. Top with pizza sauce. Cover with foil and bake 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Remove foil and cover with remaining cheese and pepperoni. Return to oven and bake until cheese is bubbly and melted.
