    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!
