Stuffed Shells

(Recipe inspired from here)

  • 20 jumbo shells

  • 3/4 C. ricotta cheese

  • 1 C. mozzarella cheese

  • 1/4 C. parmesan cheese

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 C. frozen spinach (thawed and drained)

  • 2 C. favorite spaghetti sauce

  • 3/4 lb. ground beef

  • 1/4 lb. Italian sausage

Boil jumbo shells in large pot of boiling water. Cook according to package directions. Once cooked, drain and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread 1/2 cup of your favorite sauce in the bottom of a 9×9 dish.

Add uncooked sausage to pan and cook until browned. Once cooked, stir in 1 cup of sauce and set aside.

In small mixing bowl, stir together the ricotta, 1/2 cup of mozzarella, parmesan, egg and spinach. Use small cookie scoop (1 Tbsp) to scoop cheese mixture into each shell. Top with large amount of sausage. Place in your dish and continue with the remaining shells. Cover noodles with remaining 1/2 cup of sauce and sprinkle with left over mozzarella.

Bake, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and cook an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly brown.
