Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

I am very passionate on cooking and setting the table pretty so that my family enjoys the meal. Aunt Lisa thought Emily how to, but I never took the recipe. It is really easy to change around. She used sausage, I used 90/20 ground beef. She used frozen Spinach and I used fresh. She used whole Ricotta and I used skim Ricotta. Here is my recipe. I am not surprise if I change it again.

Ingredients:
1 box of jumbo shells
 1 lb of ground beef
15 oz part skim Ricotta Cheese 
 1 large onion diced into small pieces
 1 cup  of mozzarella cheese
1 jar of sauce or homemade spaghetti sauce
15 oz fresh spinach, washed and chopped into small pieces. You can use frozen as well.
 
Instructions:
On stove, using medium pot cook Beef, garlic and onion until it looks brown. Combine the beef mix,spinach, Ricotta and half bag of mozzarella in a large bowl.
Cook shells according to package  with salt. Spoon mixture into Cooked pasta.

Cover a 13x9 pan with sauce ( enough to cover 1/3 of shell) and place stuffed shells in sauce.
Top with the rest of mozzarella and bake in the oven uncovered at 375 until hot and bubbly about 45 minutes. 
This dish freezes great! You can separate into multiple dishes including 
sauce and freeze up to 3 month in airtight container.

I am always interested how others make their dish and love to hear your comment.

  17. I never think to buy large shells Sara, instead opting for fiddling cannelloni tubes. I'm so doing this next time. Thanks so much for linking up at Thriving on Thursdays. I'm featuring this at tomorrow's party. Hope to see you again soon.
