I've been addicted to buffalo wing sauce. Frank's. My favorite. I saw these shells and knew they would be next on the list of buffalo sauce recipes to be made.
This was my first time making stuffed shells! I thought it would be more difficult and time consuming but it wasn't. It went quick and I had the perfect amount of filling for the shells. There were about 4 shells that didn't stay complete but I had 37 whole shells. I posted the Chicken Enchilada shells that I made after these, I just ended up posting those first. Whoops!
We used ranch and mozzarella but this would be great with blue cheese if you like it.
I made one 9 x 13 pan and one 8 x 8 pan of these. We ate one pan and then froze the other. I can't wait to have the other one!
Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Shells Recipe
Adapted from Sugar Crafter
1 package 12 oz. jumbo shells
13 oz. cooked and shredded chicken breast
3/4 cup hot sauce, I used Franks
3 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
3 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded, part skim
3 oz. parmesan cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, part skim
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, light
1/2 cup ranch dressing, light
Prepare pasta shells as directed on package. Mix all the ingredients except for the shells in a large bowl. Stuff each shell with as much filling as it will hold. Place in a dish sprayed with cooking spray. I put these in a 9 x 13 and an 8 x 8 casserole. Top with green onions if desired. Cook for about 20 minutes at 350.
