Webisode Wednesday: Stuffed Shells with Homemade Ricotta

By Kelsey Banfield |

Stuffed Shells with Homemade RicottaStuffed Shells with Homemade Ricotta is one of my all-time favorite family dinners. Many times people associate this dish with heavy cheese and loads of dense pasta, but I like to make a lighter version. I make a creamy homemade ricotta and a light tomato sauce, and always keep the amount of cheese on the manageable side. Best of all, this is a great make-ahead dish. I make it while my daughter is napping and leave it in the fridge for the afternoon. That way dinner is a snap to prepare in the evening. This can even made up to a day ahead of time which is great for working parents, too. And, don’t worry, if you don’t have time to make the homemade ricotta you can use store-bought as well!
