  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta shells in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir salsa, tomato sauce, corn, and olives into ground beef.
  4. Stuff shells with ground beef mixture; arrange in a single layer in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over stuffed shells.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve shells with sour cream.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute Monterey Jack for the Cheddar cheese, if desired.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I made this for my kids and couldn't get past the texture of the noodles after baking them, my kids ate the filling and left the rest.

It turned out really well. I didn't have the large shells but the small ones so it made more like a casserole than stuffed shells. The only thing I changed was I added about 1/4 cup of chopped...

A few minor changes instead of corn and black olives, I substituted black beans and green chilies and added some taco seasoning to the meat.

Loved this, just skipped the olives and sour cream and added white onions. The family loved it!

I doubled the recipe so we could have left overs for lunches! Delicious!
