Cook the shells according to packing instructions.
In a small mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese, dried parsley, Italian seasoning, and beaten egg. Stir well.
Spread one layer of marinara sauce on the bottom of your air fryer pan.
Stuff the shells with the cheese mixture and place them on the pan.
Pour the remaining pasta sauce over the shells.
Set the air fryer temperature to 300 F (150 C). Cook for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbled.
I came across this recipe when my oven broke and I still wanted to cook the shells i had planned on. I have about the same sized air fryer and I could only use about half the shells and there wasn’t enough mixture to fill them so I improvised and made more. The filling needs salt for sure and something to thicken up cheese mixture. It was okay, but definitely did not look like the picture and needs some tweaks depending on your needs. I would possible double the mixture and put more shredded.
