These Pesto Unstuffed Shells are all the cheesy goodness you can imagine! Perfect for when you need a simple, comforting dinner.

There are few things more comforting than a bubbling, cheesy pasta dish right out of the oven on a chilly evening — or just whenever you need some comfort food. If you grew up with stuffed shells, and these are a less labor-intensive version with the same results.

We use store-bought pesto mixed with creamy ricotta to coat the shells, and top the whole thing with lots of parmesan and a crispy, golden panko topping. The pesto adds a perfect brightness to all of the richness while the crunch of crispy panko adds a delicious texture to the whole dish.
