I thought this was very bland. If I ever make again, I would use a more flavorful sauce, and would definitely add some seasoning to the ricotta mixture.
One of our FAVORITE recipes! I do make my own, flavorful sauce for it though, instead of out of a jar.
I will never buy store bought again! I mixed ricotta with mozzerella and parmesean and added spinach to the filling. Simply delicious!
I was in a bind and the store was out of stuffed shells, so I used this recipe instead. Delicious, but I did have to add a lot more milk to the pasta mixture. Everyone was very impressed (I served with homemade meat sauce).
As lovely and fancy as this was, it was so bland I just got bored eating it! I did add plenty of garlic powder and dry Italian seasoning to the filling as recommended by someone else, but it wasn't enough. I hate to say this as I cooked this for a meatless meal, but I'm cooking up a little mild Italian sausage right now to sprinkle over the top to salvage the left-overs!
