Beef-Stuffed Pasta Shells
Ingredients
12
jumbo shell macaroni
12
ounces ground beef, pork, or lamb
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1/2
cup chopped green sweet pepper
1
clove garlic, minced
1
beaten egg
1/4
cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon ground allspice
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1
15 ounce container refrigerated marinara sauce or plum tomato sauce with basil or one 15-1/2-ounce jar meatless spaghetti sauce
 
Finely shredded or grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Directions
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Drain again.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture into each macaroni shell. Arrange the filled shells in a 2-quart square baking dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the filled shells. Cover the dish with foil.
