1/2 cup of Fresh grated Parmesan

1 tablespoon of basil

1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning

Pinch of garlic

Pinch of sugar

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients.

Add 2 eggs and mix.

Boil jumbo shells al dente.

Glaze bottom of casserole pan with red wine.

Cover bottom of casserole pan with sauce.

Fill shells with cheese and egg mixture.  Set them in the pan.  Take any extra cheese and layer on top of shells.  Spread more sauce on shells and cheese mixture.  Sprinkle with additional mozzarella cheese.

Italian sausage or ground beef can be added to the cheese mixture for differing flavor.
