Avocado Chicken Stuffed Shells

Last night I finally got my beautiful Rachel Ray stoneware from zulily and had to think of something to make in it right away - thus this recipe was born. 

Avocado Chicken Stuffed Shells

What you Need:
//1 avocado - mashed
//2 tsp lime juice
//1 tbsp pasta seasoning {I use Penzeys - mix of basil, oregano, garlic and thyme}
//1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
//4-6 oz tomato paste
//1 12.5oz can of chicken
//1 10oz can of Ro*tel Mexican - Diced Tomatoes with Lime Juice & Cilantro
//8oz fresh shredded mozzarella 
//1/2 cup pasta sauce {I use Ragu Traditional}
//1 box Jumbo Pasta Shells

What to Do:
//Preheat oven to 350
//Cook pasta according to directions
//Once pasta is done drain the shells, do not rinse but let cool for five or more minutes before you handle them
//While pasta is cooking Mix first seven ingredients together in a bowl along with 4oz of mozzarella
//With a spoon fill the shells with about 2 tbsp worth of filling
//Place filled shells in a greased baking dish {My new stoneware dimensions are 15.75"x 11.75"x 7.5" and I fit 24 shells in it}
//Top filled shells with the pasta sauce and remaining mozzarella
//Bake for 30 min

  1. Those are some beautiful dishes! I'm not an avocado fan but I do love stuffed shells, so these sound really good!

  2. That looks yummy and i love those baking dishes!!! Did you create this recipe all by yourself? I wish I was that good of a cook :-)

  3. Thanks! If you omit the avocado it would still be good but in all honesty you can't taste it all that much in the end!

  4. Thanks!! I did whip this up all by myself haha I had some avocados I needed to use up and some Mozzarella and this is what I came up with ;-)

  5. That looks os good, it's been awhile since I had stuffed shells. Will have to try it.
