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!
