Pasta Shells Recipe

Ingredients:
1- 12oz pk of jumbo pasta shells
1- lightly beaten egg
2- 15oz (each) containers ricotta cheese
1- 10oz pk frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
1 32oz jar spaghetti sauce

Directions:

Cook shells according to package directions.
While shells are cooking, combine the egg, ricotta, spinach, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and oregano.
Drain shells and rinse with cold water.
Fill shells with filling mixture.
Place shells in a greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Pour spaghetti sauce over shells. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until heated through. Serve with garlic bread. 

*You can also sprinkle a little more Parmesan on top of shells just before serving. It gives it a little more added flavor!*

  3. I used to buy the premade frozen variety when I wanted stuffed shells. They weren't great, but edible. I wish I would have know how easy these are to make and how delicious they turn out!
