Stuffed Shells
1 box large macaroni shells
2 lb. ricotta cheese
1 lb. package mozzarella cheese
2 eggs
1/4 cup grated Italian cheese (Parmesan, Romano or Locatelli)
3 T minced parsley

Cook shells according to package instructions. Adding 1 T oil to the water will keep them from sticking together.

Mix in medium sized bowl ricotta, eggs, grated cheese and parsley. Set aside. Cut mozzarella into "sticks" about a 1/4 inch thick and the length of the macaroni shel1.

When the shells are done cooking, stuff with ricotta mixture and place one stick of mozzarella on top. Continue until all shells have been filled.

Cook in 350 F oven for 20-25 minutes, or until mozzarella has melted. You can put a small amount of sauce on top of the shells before you cook them if desired.

Tomato Sauce
3 cans whole tomatoes (lg. 28 oz size cans)
1 medium onion, diced
2 T vegetable, or olive, oil
pepper, to taste
6 fresh basil leaves, if desired

In large saucepan, cook onion in oil until they just begin to soften and become opaque. Run cans of tomatoes, one at a time, through vegetable mill to take out the seeds. Discard seeds, and put tomatoes into the pot with the onions. Pepper to taste, and add basil, if desired at this time also. Bring to a low boil and cook on medium heat for about 1 hours. Stir frequently. Sauce will thicken the longer you cook it, but 1 hours would be the minimum time to get it to a good consistency.
