Ingredients

  • 15 uncooked jumbo pasta shells
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Additional fresh sage leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cook and drain pasta shells as directed on package. Rinse with cool water; drain.

    In large bowl, mix 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the pumpkin, ricotta cheese, egg, 2 teaspoons sage, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper until blended. Spoon about 3 tablespoons pumpkin mixture into each pasta shell. Place in baking dish.

    In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in flour and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook and stir until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Stir in nutmeg and remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese until blended. Pour sauce over shells.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A clean and easy way to stuff shells is to spoon the pumpkin filling into a resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut 1/2-inch corner off bag; squeeze filling into shells.
