Day 2 Three Cheese Stuffed Shells and Homemade Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Welcome to Day 2 of my series this month of New To Me Recipes. I am off a few days as I had some family issues that needed attending but I am back and in full gear and I am so loving trying new ideas of  both cooking and baking. Todays recipes are Three Cheese Stuffed Shells and Homemade Soft Garlic Bread Sticks. I love being able to use my bread machine for the dough cycle. I must say I loved how both of these turned out. My oldest son said it was ok but my husband and I really liked it. Sometime this month I will be trying another Stuffed Shells Recipe. I have never made these before. I know the pictures isn’t the greatest but I was starving and wanted to eat.

Three Cheese Stuffed Shells


  • 1 package of Jumbo Pasta Shells
  • 4 cups of cottage cheese
  • 2 bags of shredded mozzerella cheese (4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 pinch of garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 2 jars 26 ozs of spaghetti sauce


  1. Cook shells according to package directions. Place in cold water to stop cooking and drain.
  2. Mix together cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup paremesan cheese, eggs, garlic salt and italian seasoning. Stuff mixture into the shells
  3. Spread 1/3 cup of pasta sauce in the bottom of a 15 x 10 inch pan. Place shells open side up, and close together in pan. Spread remaining sauce over top. Before I added the sauce I put garlic salt on top of the shells. Then I added the sauce and then I added a little more garlic salt to the top of the sauce. (No it wasn't salty tasting)
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.


Soft Garlic Breadsticks


  • 1 1/8 cups water (70 to 80 degrees)
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted (save for buttering top of breadsticks)


  1. In bread machine pan, place the first nine ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting.. when cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 20 portions. Shape each into a ball, roll each into a 9 inch rope. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled. Bake at 350 for 18 - 22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Brush warm breadsticks with butter.
