Building off our original stuffed shells recipe, we’ve crafted this fall variation showcasing a fresh sage and ricotta filling topped with a decadent pumpkin cream sauce. These shells are great for a cozy night in at home or even for a family potluck when you want to show off your kitchen skills. While the ingredient list makes enough to fill one Suvie pan, this is a great recipe to double and freeze for later.
Note: If you would like to schedule this meal, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, cook shallot and garlic with 1 tbsp olive oil in a medium skillet over medium low heat about 5-7 minutes, until tender, instead of broiling in Step 1.

- 8 oz jumbo pasta shells, uncooked
- 16 oz whole milk ricotta
- 4 oz grated parmesan, plus extra for garnish
- ½ cup fresh sage leaves, roughly chopped
- 2 large eggs

- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 tbsp finely chopped shallot
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1) Stir shallots, garlic, and 1 tbsp olive oil together in a Suvie pan. Insert pan into the top of your Suvie and broil 10 minutes, until shallots are tender. Transfer mix to a medium bowl. Stir pumpkin puree, heavy cream, honey, and 1 tsp salt into onion and garlic mix.
2) In a medium bowl, mix ricotta, parmesan, sage, egg, and 1 tsp salt. Fill each shell with approximately 2 tbsp of mix. Spread ½ cup pumpkin sauce evenly over bottom of Suvie pan.
