Devokids – Stuffed Shells

Leave a comment

I don’t know what your family eats, but pasta is a staple at our house. We eat so much of it that I’ve started buying the kind that is fortified with protein and omega-3.  Gotta get the good stuff into my three ultra- lean boys any way I can. Lewis says  the reason you can see his ribs is that his bones are really big and his skin is really thin. 😉

Check out my March food post at Devokids for a super yummy pasta dish. (Thanks a bunch to my friend Cheryl and her daughter Mya for providing the recipe and photos.)  While you are there, check out the other fun kid stuff on the site. Devotions, coloring pages, stories…they recently did a major overhaul on the website and are continually adding content so keep checking back.

Here’s a sneak peak at the casserole along with the ingredient list.


Ingredient List

1 lb. jumbo pasta shells

3 tbsp. olive oil

1 1/2 lb. lean ground beef (could use Italian sausage, pork, or turkey)

2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed

1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

1 24 oz.  jar marinara sauce or 1 can crushed tomatoes

1 24 oz, container ricotta or cottage cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 cups mozzarella or Italian blend cheese

Check out Devokids for the rest of the recipe.

My posts seem to be heavy on the food recently, but I am not turning this into a food blog. I promise. 🙂
