Ingredients

  • 1/2 box Jumbo pasta shells
  • 1 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground oregano
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 cups marinara

For The Filling

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 16 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Brown and drain ground beef in a pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Cook on low until onions become opaque.
  • While ground beef is cooking, boil water in a separate pot, adding half a box of jumbo shells; cook until al dente and strain. Place noodles back into the pot and stir in about 1/2 cup of marinara sauce to prevent sticking.
  • In a bowl, mix ricotta, 1 cup grated mozzarella, 2 eggs and freshly chopped basil. Stir in ground beef mixture until evenly mixed.
  • Pour about 1 cup of marinara into a 13 x 9 baking dish. Spoon in lasagna filling until shell is stuff (about 2 big spoonfuls) place in baking dish and repeat until baking dish is full. Top with remaining grated cheese and more marinara if desired.
  • Cover baking dish with tin foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove tin foil and bake for another 5 minutes. Enjoy!
