Stuffed shells are scrumptious. A creamy filling inside tender pasta swimming in a sea of tomato sauce and baked with plenty of vegan cheese. My family loves stuffed shells but the process can seem overwhelming. I believe that is mainly because stuffing of the shells can be overwhelming - it can be messy and time consuming.
Here is the easiest way to make them, by following the directions below. Use your favorite tomato sauce recipe (or brand), your favorite tofu or nut ricotta recipe and mix a blend of vegan cheese for optimal melting ability.
Step 1. Spread your tomato sauce on the bottom of a casserole pan. Arrange the COOKED shells on the tomato sauce.
Step 2. Place the filling inside a zip top bag, twist the bag and snip one corner, about 1-inch across. The opening should be large enough to squeeze out enough filling to fill the shells.
Step 3. Fill the shells using your homemade piping bag.
Step 4. Sprinkle with the vegan cheese blend, cover the pan with foil to melt the cheese. Bake in a 400-degree oven for about 15 minutes, uncover and bake for 5 more minutes.
The Result: Easy Baked Stuffed Shells
