  • 12 ounce box Jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 1/2 cups cooked chicken , shredded (I use rotisserie)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh broccoli , steamed and chopped

Alfredo sauce:

  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 2/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese , divided
  • 2 large egg yolks , beaten
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste


  • Cook pasta according to package instructions, just until al dente. Drain from water and lay out on a large dish to cool, so that they don't stick together.

Make alfredo sauce:

  • Combine butter, garlic, heavy cream and milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. 

  • Beat egg yolks in a small bowl. Add a spoonful of the hot milk mixture to the eggs, stirring to temper the eggs. Repeat with several more spoonfuls. 

  • Slowly add the egg mixture to the saucepan and stir to combine. Remove from heat. 

  • Stir in Parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add chicken, broccoli, and 1/2 cup alfredo sauce.  Toss to combine. 

  • Add a spoonful of alfredo sauce to the bottom of a 9x13'' pan. Fill shells with a large spoonful of chicken and broccoli mixture and place in prepared pan.

  • Pour remaining alfredo sauce evenly over the shells. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 25 minutes or until warm and bubbly.

  • Next time try lasagna stuffed shells or pizza stuffed shells!
