Ingredients

  • 10-15 pasta shells
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup parmesan cheese divided
  • 1 cup shredded chicken
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce

Instructions

  • Pre cook the pasta shells. (I suggest cooking 15 even though you will only fill 10 just in case a few shells rip!) If using your Instant Pot to pre cook the shells, cover the shells with water and cook on Manual HIGH for 3 min with a 5 min NPR. If using the stove top, boil the shells until al dente.
  • Rinse the shells under cold water when they are finished cooking.
  • While the shells are boiling, make the cheese filling.
  • Combine the cottage cheese, 1 cup of parmesan cheese, shredded chicken, parsley, salt, pepper and the egg in a medium sized bowl. Stir thoroughly.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of the Alfredo sauce on the bottom of an 8×8 pan.
  • Spoon the filling into each shell, one at a time, arranging the shells in the pan as you go. You will end up with 2 rows of 5 shells.
  • Pour the remaining Alfredo sauce on top of the shells. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
  • Allow the shells to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
