Love these stuffed shells! I use a 16 ounce box of large pasta shells, cook al dente in salted boiling water, rinse, set aside to cool down. Add 8 ounces sirloin ground beef to a skillet, one finely diced onion, one half bell pepper, diced. One teaspoon garlic salt, dash or two of black pepper, cook ground beef until browned, remove grease, add one teaspoon oregano, one teaspoon basil, stir well, add 22 ounces tomato/or marinara sauce on low heat. Cook until combine and well heated through. Allow to cool slightly.
Using a tablespoon or wooden spoon fill each pasta shell and place in a baking dish. Add grated (one cup) parmesan cheese, 1-1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese, cover with foil and place into a 400 F oven for 15 minutes, remove foil, shut off heat and let residual oven heat finish melting the cheeses.
Serve with a green salad and garlic bread.
