How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Oil the bottom and sides of an 8-1/2 X 11-inch baking dish and reserve until needed.
  • To prepare the pasta:
  • Boil the pasta shells in a large pot of boiling salted water until they are slightly tender but still quite firm to the bite, about 4 to 6 minutes. The shells will continue cooking in the oven after they have been stuffed.
  • Remove the boiling pot from the heat and add cold tap water until the shells can be handled. Reserve until needed.
  • To prepare the cheese filling:
  • Cream the ricotta cheese and stir in the Parmesan cheese, beaten egg yolks, chopped basil, parlsey and mint, salt and black pepper. Reserve until needed.
  • To prepare the Arrabbiata sauce:
  • Heat the oil over medium heat. Add the pancetta and sauté until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the red chile flakes and the garlic, sautéing until tender, about 1 minute more.
  • Stir in the Basic Tomato Sauce. Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce to a slow simmer, stirring often.
  • To Stuff the shells:
  • Spread a light coating of the Arrabbiata sauce over the bottom of the oiled baking dish.
  • Stuff the cooked shells with about two tablespoons of the cheese filling per shell. Arranging the shells in the prepared dish.
  • Spoon the remaining Arrabbiata sauce over the stuffed shells and sprinkle the grated mozzarella over the top of the sauce.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese filling is heated through and the cheese topping is a golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.
