The Stuffed Shells Experiment

Stuffed and ready to go

This weekend I decided to invoke my inner Martha Stewart.  I tried making stuffed shells with ground beef on Saturday.  I call this an experiment because I did not use a recipe.  That could be my first mistake.  I used cooked ground beef, ricotta, salt, pepper, and an egg.  Mixed it all up in a bowl and stuffed my cooked shells.  So far, so good.  Placed it in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes.

Baked and ready to eat

My end result wasn't too bad.  What did I learn from this experience?  The stuffing could have used an extra egg and maybe some more seasoning.  Overall I'd say it gets a 7.  I've been a stay at home mom for over 4 years now, but I'm still no Betty Crocker.  Everyday I try to better myself as a cook, mom, wife, and person.  I think next time I will use a recipe from Everyday Italian.
