Stuffed Pasta Shells with Chicken, Broccoli, Cheese and smothered in Alfredo sauce! You'll love this easy, freezer friendly, weeknight dinner recipe!


  • 1 box (16 ounce) jumbo pasta shells, cooked (about 40 shells)
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 1 ½ cups broccoli florets, diced
  • 6 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 jars alfredo sauce


  1. Cook pasta shells according to package to al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cooked, shredded chicken with broccoli, cream cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  3. Using a 2 Tbsp cookie scoop, fill each pasta shell with a scoop of chicken mixture.
  4. In a large baking dish, pour one jar of alfredo sauce in the bottom of the dish. Add a single layer of pasta shells. Drizzle remaining jar of alfredo sauce over the top and sprinkle with parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Cover dish with foil.
  5. Bake in a 350°F oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil and return to oven for an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted on top!


  • For freezer friendly option, complete steps 1-3. Once all the shells are stuffed, place them on a cookie sheet and freeze for 15-30 minutes. Remove from freezer and place in gallon sized ziploc bags and return to freezer until ready to make. Continue with step 4 when ready to make and bake for one hour with foil on top. Remove foil and return to oven for additional 5-10 minutes to melt cheese.
  • You can scale this down by only cooking the number of shells you need for each meal. 10 shells need ¼ cup parmesan cheese, ¼ cup mozzarella cheese, and ½ jar alfredo sauce.
