Stuffed Shells

This was my first time making stuffed shells. It was really easy and pretty fun. Just a few ingredients too. I think the total I spent on our dinner was maybe $10.00 at the most. We had tons of food; Todd said it was like Olive Garden. But guess what, OG, I didn't pay you $50.00 for our meals! IN YOUR FACE! :)

Ricotta Cheese
Parmesan Cheese (not grated)
Spaghetti Sauce
Shredded Cheese

*Boil shells via directions on box - I did mine for 10 minutes. In the meantime, preheat oven to 400degrees.
*In a bowl, combine a large carton of ricotta cheese and 1/4cup Parmesan cheese. While the noodles are boiling, grab 1/3cup of the pasta water and add to your cheese mix.
*Add salt/pepper to taste
*Once the shells are finished to Al-Dente (a little bit of a bite to it .. they have to cook in the oven still), drain and let cool.
*Add a little bit of spaghetti sauce to the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish
*Fill the shells with the ricotta mixture and add to the baking dish
*Once all are finished, put as much spaghetti sauce on top of the shells as you want
*Add as much shredded cheese as you want
*Bake for 30-40 minutes until the cheese melts all the way and everything is hot
*Broil for a few minutes to get the top brown

We also had a salad and some crescent rolls.
