1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (the powdery kind)

1/4 cup fresh fennel – chopped

1/2 cup red onion

1/4 cup mushrooms – chopped

garlic powder – to taste

8 oz spaghetti sauce


1. set oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Boil shells until they are al dente (cooked but not mushy)

3. while shells are boiling combine cheeses, onion, mushroom, garlic powder, and all but a pinch of the fennel in a bowl, mix it up

3. Rinse shells in cool water and coat the bottom of an 8 x 12 pan with spaghetti sauce, place shells in the pan

4. spoon cheese mixture into shells and bake for thirty minutes

5. heat spaghetti sauce in a pot and pour it over the shells when they come out of the oven

6. garnish with fennel and enjoy
