How to Make Seafood Stuffed Shells


  • 24 jumbo pasta shells
  • 1 tbsp of chopped onion
  • ¼ cup and 1 teaspoon of butter
  • 12 ounces of drained crabmeat
  • 5 ounces of cooked salad shrimp
  • ¼ cup of mayonnaise
  • ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 cups plus 2 tablespoons of milk
  • ¼ cup of flour
  • ¼ tsp of pepper
  • 1 tsp of seafood seasoning
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese


  • Cook the pasta from the seafood stuffed shells recipe in a large pot, according to packaging instructions. Typically, you will warm up enough water in a pot to cover the pasta and then add the pasta when the water is boiling. From there, cook the pasta until tender.
  • Beat the egg and set aside.
  • Sauté the onion in butter using a skillet and then set that aside.
  • Combine egg, shrimp, mozzarella cheese, crab, 2 tablespoons of milk, mayonnaise, pepper, and seafood seasoning.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a 13 x 9 baking dish by greasing it.
  • Drain the pasta and rinse it, then stuff each shell with about a tablespoon of seafood mixture.
  • Place the shells into the baking dish, but don’t bake yet.
  • Melt the rest of your butter in a separate saucepan on medium heat and add in the flour and pepper. Slowly mix in the rest of the milk and bring the mixture of a boil. Cook for an additional 2 minutes and then stir in the Parmesan cheese. You have just made cheesy white sauce, also called a roux.
  • Pour the roux over the stuffed shells and garnish with seafood seasoning. Bake for 30 minutes. You will know the seafood stuffed shells are done cooking when they are bubbly.
