Pizza Stuffed Shells

I just finished eating, and I have to say...I'm quite impressed with this.  I had no recipe, I just tried to remember a friend's mom's recipe and went with it.

  • 1 lb ground beef - browned
  • 1 box jumbo pasta shells - boiled to almost done
  • sliced pepperoni
  • spaghetti sauce (I used an onion & garlic version)
  • 1 bag shredded mozzarella
  • garlic salt
  • crushed pepper flakes (the stuff you sprinkle on pizza)
  • oregano
  • grated parmesan cheese

As I was browning the meet and boiling the pasta, I mixed together the cheese, pepper, garlic salt and oregano.
Once everything was cooked, I placed two slices of pepperoni in each shell, and a spoonfull of ground beef.  I kept filling shells until they filled up a 9x13 pan.  When done with that, I spooned a little spaghetti sauce over each shell, and topped the whole dish with the cheese mixture.

Then I baked at 350 until the cheese started to brown.  (Sorry...forgot to pay attention how long that was.  Maybe 30-40 minutes?)

Mmmmm.  I was seriously happy with my dinner tonight!

These are very similar to my famous (in my house at least) pasta shell tacos. I'll have to post that recipe for you soon! They are very yummy as well. I'll have to try these next time.
