Stuffed Pasta Shells



This recipe comes from here, those recipe cards I loved as a newlywed. This time I added my own touch to the recipe by adding in some garlic, diced onion, handful of thawed frozen spinach, pepper and nutmeg as well. I also doubled this, and it gave us lots (9x13 pan full). These are a great freezer item as well! Just prepare shells and freeze before the baking step. You can print a copy of the cards (right click it) from the site, so I'll just list the ingredients here.

These were great, I was worried my family would complain about the "green stuff" but they never even asked and never even knew it was spinach! haha



spaghetti sauce ( I used crushed tomatoes w/basil + garlic)
basil or parsley (I used both)
jumbo pasta shells (I cooked the whole box)
ricotta cheese
mozzarella cheese
egg whites
green onion
parmesan cheese

these are my additions, I just eyeballed it, "just a little bit of..."
-crushed garlic
-diced onion
-handful thawed frozen spinach, squeezed out
-pepper
-nutmeg



enjoy,
