The Barefoot Cook

Ham Stuffed Jumbo Shells


24 jumbo Pasta Shells
3 tablespoons all-purpose Flour
2 cups Milk
1/2 pound fresh Mushrooms, halved and sliced
1/2 cup chopped Onion
1/2 cup chopped Green Pepper
1 tablespoon Oil
3 cups cubed fully cooked Ham
1 cup shredded Swiss Cheese, divided
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh Parsley
1/4 teaspoon Paprika

Cook pasta according to package directions. In a small saucepan, combine flour and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat.
In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion and green pepper in oil until tender. Reduce heat; add the ham, 1/2 cup Swiss cheese and Parmesan cheese. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Remove from the heat. Stir in 1/2 cup of the reserved sauce.
Drain pasta; stuff each shell with about 3 tablespoons of filing. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Top with remaining sauce. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with parsley, paprika and remaining Swiss cheese.

Makes 8 servings, 3 shell per person.
