Description

Delicious stuffed shells with all the glory of Chicken Alfredo. You’ll love ‘em!

Ingredients

  • 20 whole Jumbo Pasta Shells, Cooked And Drained
  • 2 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil, For Grilling Or Frying
  • ¾ cups Ricotta Cheese
  • ¾ cups Cottage Cheese
  • ¾ cups Grated Mozzarella Cheese, Plus More For The Top
  • 2 cups Grated Parmesan Cheese, Plus More For The Top
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ¼ cups Minced Fresh Parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Basil
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 cups Whole Milk
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream, Plus More, As Needed
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a grill pan or iron skillet over medium heat, drizzle with olive oil, and cook the chicken on both sides until it’s done. Remove and shred with two forks and allow to cool.

In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, cottage cheese, mozzarella, 1 cup of the Parmesan, eggs, 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, salt, pepper, and chicken. Stir to combine, splashing in 2 tablespoons heavy cream if needed. Set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and sprinkle over the flour. Whisk and cook until the roux turns golden brown. Pour in the milk and cream, whisking constantly, and cook for a few minutes, until thickened. Add the garlic, the additional 1 cup Parmesan, salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon minced parsley, and minced basil and stir until combined. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Set aside.

Add 1 cup sauce to the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Using a spoon, fill each of the jumbo shells generously with the chicken/ricotta mixture. Lay them face down in the pan, then pour the sauce all over the top. Sprinkle on extra mozzarella and Parmesan, then bake for 25 minutes, or until bubbly and golden.

Serve with salad!
