In honor of Talk Like A Pirate Day (yes, its a real thing apparently) try this yummy recipe and have fun with the kids while busting out your best Arrrgh!!! #talklikeapirateday


  • 1 (12 ounce) package jumbo pasta shells

  • 2 logs fresh goat cheese (11 ounces each) or (15 ounce) cartons whole milk ricotta cheese

  • 1 cup minced fresh basil

  • 1cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1teaspoon salt

  • 1 (24 ounce) jar marinara sauce

  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • zucchini, strips (Pirate Treasure X marks the spot!) (optional)

  • additional marinara sauce (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425°. Cook pasta shells according to package directions for al dente; drain.

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix goat cheese, basil, Parmesan cheese, garlic and salt. Spread 1-1/4 cups marinara sauce into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.

  • Fill each shell with 1 rounded tablespoon cheese mixture; arrange over sauce. Pour remaining sauce over shells. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. If channeling your inner pirate, make X's over the top using crisscrossed zucchini strips.

  • Bake, covered, 25 minutes. Bake, uncovered, 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted. If desired, warm additional sauce and serve with shells. Enjoy! Arrrgh!
