Hearty Stuffed Shells

Here is one of Bob’s all time favorites so I made it for Valentine’s Day dinner.  It’s not hard to make, just a little time consuming but it’s really tasty in fact Bob has been known to sneak down in the middle of the night and eat it cold!  This is another one of those recipes that I’ve had forever and so can’t remember where it came from.

1 1/2 pounds hamburger

1 onion, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic

1 cup breadcrumbs

1 (32 oz) jar spaghetti sauce

1 egg

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

3/4 teaspoon oregano

salt and pepper

3/4 package (12 oz) jumbo shells, cooked according to package directions (I always cook the whole package because some of the shells are broken and unusable so if you cook the whole package then you will have enough)

6 oz shredded Mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 375.  Brown beef with onion and garlic.  Combine meat, bread crumbs, 1 cup sauce, egg, Parmesan cheese and oregano.  Spread 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce in 9 x 13″ pan.  Fill each shell with 1 tablespoon of meat mixture and place in pan.  Top with remaining sauce.  Bake covered for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle with Mozzarella and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
