Last week I decided to try out my spinach & cheese filling on Jumbo pasta shells. It’s basically the same recipe I use for my Yummy Spinach & Cheese Pasta Rolls, but I used Ricotta Cheese instead of cottage cheese.
The stuffed shells go great with garlic bread or garlic knots.
10 Jumbo Pasta Shells
10 oz. frozen chopped spinach – thawed
1 cup Ricotta Cheese
1 1/2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
1/4 cup shredded fresh Parmesan Cheese
1 tbls. garlic powder
1 tsp. crushed red peppers
1/2 bottle of Pasta Sauce any flavor
Cook Pasta Shells according to the box directions. Drain and place on clean surface.
Drain thawed spinach – squeeze as much as the water out
Add Ricotta Cheese, 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, Parmesan Cheese, Garlic Powder and Crushed pepper to spinach. Mix well.
Separate spinach mixture into 10 equal portions.
Carefully spoon each portion into each shell
Place stuffed shells into an oven proof baking dish
Pour Pasta Sauce over shells; sprinkle with remaining Mozzarella Cheese
Bake in 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Don’t over cook the shell edges will become hard.
Serve hot with garlic bread or garlic knots.
