Stuffed Conchiglie (Jumbo Shell) Chicken with Four Cheese ( Step by Step Method)

Conchiglie or Shell Pasta are the same in term of shape and design but it's comes in different sizes. We can get this pasta in any supermarket. Usually I just get the shell in box instead the one from frozen food section. I know buying TV food (ready to eat) is easy and simple, I don't have to slaves myself in my kitchen for hours but on the other bright side I can choose my own filling. That mean I can add my favourite ingredients and stuffing,right? Actually it's not really hard to make since I used conchiglioni = jumbo shells in box. Here I show my recipe steps by steps how to make this delicious pasta. This pasta dish is ideal to cook for your guests or party. Ingredients:


1 box conchiglioni (jumbo shells )


1 lb boneless chicken breast(cut cube)


1 lbs Mozzarella cheese (cut cube)


1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1 lb Ricotta cheese


4-8 oz (1 box) chopped frozen spinach


5 stripe cooked bacon (chopped)


2 can pasta sauce









Method:


1: Cook the conchiglioni (jumbo shells) in a large pan of rapidly boiling salted water until al dente.Drain well, set aside.


2:Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C. Prepare 2 large baking dish .


3: Remove water from frozen chopped spinach,combine with cut chicken,cut mozzarella,chopped bacon and ricotta cheese,mix well in a large bowl.


4: Spoon a tablespoon of the mixture into each shell and arrange onto the baking dish.Repeat the procedure until finish. Spoon pasta sauce on the top of stuffed shell,then ,top some shredded cheddar cheese on each shell ,then sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top.Cover the baking dish with aluminium foil.


5:Bake for 2o minutes, removed the aluminium foil bake for another 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown.Serve warm.

If ricotta is the cheese of 2009, then this dish surely brings out the best of its qualities. It looks delicious. Interesting touch of chicken...
