ricotta and spinach stuffed shells

2 May

Ahhh! Life has been so busy lately! Definitely a good thing, but I seem to have neglected my sweet little blog. Must. Get. Better!

Today I’m sharing a super easy recipe for Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Shells. Charlie said that they are “f-cking good”…so, there’s that.

Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Shells

15-20 jumbo shells, cooked according to the package and rinsed in cool water

1 15 oz. container of part-skim ricotta cheese

1 cup of chopped spinach

1 jar of pasta sauce

1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

2 eggs, slightly beaten

salt & pepper

chopped basil

a few pinches of Italian dressing mix (probably optional, but I like the taste)

1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. While it’s warming up, mix the ricotta cheese and the eggs in a medium sized bowl. Add the mozzarella, Italian dressing mix, salt & pepper, and chopped spinach. Mix, mix, mix!


Pour a layer of pasta sauce into the bottom of an oven-safe baking dish. Scoop a heaping spoonful of the ricotta mixture into each shell and place it on top of the pasta sauce.


Once you’ve filled all of your shells, spoon some pasta sauce over the top of the shells and cover with the Parmesan cheese.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until warm. Top with some more Parmesan cheese and chopped basil. Enjoy!
