Stuffed Pasta Shells


This is a quick & easy recipe from my friend Stephanie. I rarely have ricotta cheese so I substitute cottage cheese. And since I'm not a huge fan of spinach, I chop it up extra fine and just put a little in. I also just smoother the entire pan with sauce so the noodles don't get crispy.

4 c. (16 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
15 oz. ricotta cheese
1 pkg. frozen chopped spinach
1 pkg. jumbo pasta shells
1 jar (28 oz.) spaghetti sauce

Cook pasta shells. Thaw and drain spinach. Combine cheeses and spinach; stuff into shells. Arrange in a greased 13x9” dish. Pour spaghetti sauce over the shells. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through. Yield 12-14 servings.

I finally made this last night. It was yummy. I even like the spinach in it. I don't mind spinach as long as it is cooked into things. It is great for the kids too because they are getting their veggies and they don't even know it.
