 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         ground beef
    1      large         onion -- chopped
    1      clove         garlic -- chopped to taste
    8      ounces        shredded mozzarella cheese
      1/2  cup           bread crumbs
    1                    egg
                         Seasonings *
   18                    giant shells
    1      jar           spaghetti sauce
      1/2  cup           grated parmesan cheese **
 
 * salt, pepper, parsley, oregano (all to taste) **(I have also used more mozzar
 ella since we like things cheesy :) )
 
 Brown ground meat, onion and garlic. Drain and cool. Cook shells in boiling wat
 er about 15 minutes, drain. Into meat mixture, stir in mozzarella cheese, bread
  crumbs, egg and seasonings. Spread 1/4 of the jar of sauce into a baking dish 
 (I use a lasagne pan, sorry can't recall dimensions!). Stuff the shells with th
 e meat mixture and place in dish on top of sauce. Pour remaining sauce over the
  stuffed shells and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake
  at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Freezing i
 nstructions: I have frozen this dish several times with success. Use the foil p
 ans for this or put foil in your baking dish before the sauce and assembling sh
 ells. You can cook the shells then cool and freeze; thaw and reheat at 350 degr
 ees till heated through. You can also freeze the stuffed shells before cooking,
  then thaw and cook as directed. The only thing I have noticed when freezing is
  that you may need to add more sauce over the top.
