You mix the egg with the stuffing mixture, apparently it is like a binding agent, so you mix the egg with all the ingredients you are going to stuff the shells with. I hope you like it and hope it works correct. emoticon

Thanks for posting this it sounds good. I think I will add it to my meal plan this week but I do have one question. What, when, and how do you implement the egg in this recipe?

Thanks for sharing!

I don't have any shells in the house, but if I did, I would have made it tonight. emoticon

Hi guys, just wanted to share this recipe a friend made me. I thought it was great and wasn't really high on the fat meter, so thought I would share with you guys. emoticon

I just had a friend over and they made this wonderful stuffed shell recipe. She used a healthier version noodle, not sure which though, or it may have been regular old jumbo noodles.

She used some frozen mixed veggies, broccoli, spinach and low fat ricotta cheese and 1 egg.

You pretty much make it the same way you would any stuffed shells. You cook the shells as stated on package. You then prepare your filling, in a bowl. You pick your sauce you want, homemade or store bought, whichever you like. You put a little in the bottom then put the stuffed shells in and then put remaining sauce on top. You could use a little low fat cheese on top, if you like. She said she put her oven on 350 and baked them for about 30-45 minutes, depending on your stove.

She made them for me, my husband and her. She usually the following amounts below for us, of course you can feel free to add more or less, all to your liking.

--half bag of frozen veggies (prob like a 10oz bag)*
--1 cup finely chopped broccoli (you can use frozen)*
--1 cup frozen spinach*
--1 container of ricotta cheese (the normal size they sell is fine, not a huge tub or anything)
--1 egg ( 2 is fine, if you prefer, i have made some stuffed shells before and used no eggs, cause I really don't like them and the stuffed shells came out just as good, so you can leave the eggs out if you prefer)
--1-2 cans sauce (or homemade, I am putting 1-2 cause I know some people like more sauce, so all up to you)

Turn oven to 350, place in oven for 30-45 minutes, depending on your stove.

I hope you guys like this. I am going by word of mouth on this, so if you know how to cook much better than I do and see something that won't work right by all means change it, that is just fine. It, at least, gives you all an idea of something new to try. I hope it works out, I have not made it myself yet.

* She placed frozen veggies in microwave to thaw a good bit. she then place the broccoli and the spinach together and thawed them as well and then ran her knife through them some, when they cooled a good bit, to dice them up. You don't have to do that if you don't want, I am sure it will still be good with the chunks of broccoli.

Like i said guys this is something she showed me. Please don't take this written in stone, I have tried it myself so it could all be a disaster. She is certainly a better cook than I. I, at least, hope I gave you all an idea to try. I am sure you could probably put whatever you like in stuffed shells, I don't see where it would hurt.

She also has a version where she puts some ground turkey in hers too. She served this with a tangy cole slaw she made. It was pretty darn good meal, if I may say so myself. Thank you guys for ready my rambling recipe post. emoticon
