  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain, and cool.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon, onion, and garlic until bacon starts to crisp and onion and garlic have softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.
  4. Mix the bread crumbs, cream cheese, parsley, and the bacon mixture in a large bowl; season with pepper to taste.
  5. Pour the tomato puree into a large, shallow casserole dish; stir in the rosemary.
  6. Spoon the bacon and breadcrumb mixture equally into the pasta shells. Arrange the stuffed shells in the casserole dish. Coarsely chop the mozzarella and scatter over the pasta shells. Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted and sauce bubbles, about 30 minutes.

This was tasteless as written.

This was really good. I did make some changes (I used ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese. My bacon-crazy kids really liked this one.

I liked this recipe..made it as is the first time except I used shredded cheese instead of Buffalo and wished I had used Ragu instead of tomato puree. The second time I tried this I got creativ...

From the first bite we were making "mmm" noises. We really enjoyed this and will be making it a lot.

Mostly made as is. I didn't care to hunt down whatever 'Buffalo' mozzarella is so just used regular. (I'll have to check that out since I'm a cheese lover.) And I don't usually have smoked ba...

Did not like these at all. The taste of breadcrumbs was too overpowering. I didn't use fresh breadcrumbs but dried which may have been the reason. Per another review I did add cheddar cheese ...

pretty good. I used dry bread crumbs and it was too much, couldn't even taste the cream cheese. so more bacon, less bread crumbs.
