Who doesn’t love pizza--or pasta, for that matter?
This recipe combines all the flavors that you love from both in one delicious meal! Nearly everything about this recipe is flexible and optional. You can use pretty much whatever ingredients you like on your pizza mixed into these large shells.
There is a LOT of pepperoni in these babies, but they are fantastic that way! Beef, onions, olives, bacon, ham, jalapenos, so many possibilities! What do you like in your shells? Give 'em a try!
Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly spray a 11×15-inch baking dish or 2 smaller pans with cooking spray.
Cook jumbo pasta shells (al dente) according to package. Drain and cool.
In large bowl, combine sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, green pepper, cottage cheese, and 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese.
Stuff pasta shells with cheese mixture and place in prepared baking dish. Top with spaghetti sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese. (Can be frozen at this point)
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
This recipe makes quite a lot! You can just make half a recipe or better yet, just eat half and freeze half for another time. How many shells you actually use will totally depend on how much filling you put into each one. I tend to stuff quite a bit of filling into my shells, so I actually had some pieces of pasta left over.
