These stuffed shells are perfect for dinner, but make the perfect appetizer when watching the game. .

The stuffing is not very gooey, so you can easily pick up a shell with your fingers and take a bite without mess!

Ingredients:
16 large pasta shells
1 pound ground chicken
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 cup diced celery
6-8 tablespoons Frank’s Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce
1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
salt to taste
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil then cook pasta shells according to package directions. Drain cooked shells then add to a large bowl of ice water until ready to fill.
In the meantime, add olive oil to a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add ground chicken and use a spoon to break the chicken apart, cook 5-8 minutes until brown. Add garlic powder and celery and cook another 3-4 minutes until tender

Remove pan from the heat then stir in hot sauce, ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup of blue cheese crumbles and parsley. Taste for seasoning, add salt if necessary.

Use a spoon to fill each pasta shell then arrange shells in a baking dish (10-1/2 by 7 inch baking dish works well). Sprinkle tops with 2 tablespoons of blue cheese then bake in the oven 25 minutes until cheese has melted and tips of shells begin to crisp and brown.
