How to Reheat Stuffed Shells

To reheat non-casserole baked pasta dishes, such as stuffed jumbo shells, place the shells in an oven-safe dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 375 degrees until the shells’ internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Hearing or seeing the shells sizzling is usually a good indication that they are nearing or at the desired internal temperature.

If you have to use a microwave to reheat stuffed shells, you should reheat individual portions one at a time. Here’s what you should do:

  • Place a single serving of shells on a microwave-safe dish and drizzle a little extra sauce or water on top to keep them moist while they cook.
  • Then, cover the dish and microwave the shells at medium heat for 1 to 1 ½ minutes.
  • Check to see if they have warmed all the way through—if they haven’t, continue to microwave them at medium power in 15-second increments until completely heated.
