The No-Cook Method (my favorite)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 can or 1 cup of chicken (drained)
1 cup water.
Cover bottom of casserole dish with a layer of sauce.
Cover. and bake at 400 for 35 minutes.
Make Ahead Freezer Directions.
We often do not eat a whole box of stuffed shells, so this recipe works for when you want to make some and freeze the rest for later. Hello instant, impressive Italian meal. OK, almost instant.
The only difference with the ingredients is that you omit the water from the sauce and you do not heat the spaghetti sauce. Boil box of jumbo shells in salted water for 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain in colander. Fill shells with filling. Place in a freezer safe container and layer with sauce, shells, sauce, shells, sauce.
Cover with a plastic wrap or other lid and freeze up to 2 months.
To bake, heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 2 hours if frozen or 40 to 50 minutes if defrosted.
