Start by cooking the pasta and set it aside to cool. Prepare the cheese mixture by combing the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg, and spices. Stuff the shells. I use an ice tea spoon and use the handle to push the stuffing into the shell. Place the stuffed shells in the baking pan and bake. Let cool and serve.
