Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Stuffed Shells

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Stuffed Shells: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This dish a bit unique in that the shells are stuffed with a mixture that has an Alfredo sauce in it and then placed in a dish that has spaghetti sauce in it. The combination of Alfredo sauce and spaghetti sauce may not sound like a good one, but let me tell you it is. It is a very delicious combination.

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Stuffed Shells


  • 16 ounces Alfredo sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cups chopped cooked broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 box jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cook pasta shells according to package directions, and let cool just enough to handle.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the Alfredo sauce, chicken, broccoli and both cheeses.
  4. Pour spaghetti sauce into the prepared pan, into an even layer.
  5. Spoon chicken and broccoli filling into the cooked shells and place into the prepared pan on top of the spaghetti sauce.
  6. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 35 minutes or until heated through.

Depending on how full you fill the shells you could need anywhere from 21 to 32. I usually cook the entire box because it never fails that some break on me.
