Pizza-Stuffed Pasta Shells

Serves 6


1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
4 oz pepperoni slices, cut into quarters
3 cups organic pizza sauce
21 uncooked jumbo pasta shells
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)


Heat oven to 375F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass or ceramic baking dish with cooking spray.

In a 10 or 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook 1 lb lean ground beef and 1 finely chopped garlic clove over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked. Drain. Stir in half of the 4 oz quartered pepperoni slices and 1 cup of the pizza sauce. Cook for 5 minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, cook 21 uncooked jumbo pasta shells as directed on the package. Drain.

Stuff each cooked shell with 2 tablespoons of beef mixture; place in a single layer in a baking dish. Cover shells with remaining 2 cups pizza sauce, the 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese and the remaining half of the pepperoni.

Bake for 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
