Ingredients:

  • 1 box (12 oz) jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (such as cremini or button)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. Cook the jumbo pasta shells according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté until they release their moisture and turn golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  5. Pour in the white wine and simmer for 2-3 minutes until slightly reduced. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked mushrooms mixture, softened cream cheese, ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley. Stir until well combined.
  7. Stuff each cooked jumbo shell generously with the mushroom and cheese mixture and place them in the prepared baking dish.
  8. Once all the shells are filled and arranged in the baking dish, sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the top.
  9. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  10. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
  11. Garnish with additional chopped parsley if desired before serving.
  12. Serve hot and enjoy the creamy, flavorful goodness of these white wine mushroom stuffed shells!
