Cheese Stuffed Shells

Don't be too surprised, but I'm  here with another installment of Holly Homemaker's Recipes. It's been ... quite a while, I know, but here goes anyway! Cheese Stuffed Shells:

You will need:
12-16 fully cooked large shells
1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella
1.5 ounces Parmesan
1 cup Ricotta
1 Large Egg
6-7 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
1 small bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 jar red sauce

Pre-heat oven to 350.

Mix all together except 1/4 cup of mozzarella, the shells, and the red sauce.

Stuff each of the shells equally

Spread the red sauce across the shells, liberally or non-liberally depending on your tastes :)

(We tried alfredo sauce on one batch but the red sauce tasted MUCH better. 
The alfredo sauce ones were fairly bland!)
Bake for 25 minutes.

Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese on top and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

I made something similar to this a LONG time ago. It's a Giada De Laurentas (not spelt right) recipe and it's quite delicious. I'd LOVE to try yours though sometime! Man...I need to get back up with our Cooks Unlimited blog huh? LOL
