Recipe by Kimber
"This is a delicious baked pasta dish with large shells filled with meat, spinach and cheese that children always seem to love. It is kind of a 'spaghetti that behaves itself!'"

1 (16 ounce) package
jumbo pasta shells
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen chopped spinach - thawed, drained and squeezed dry
grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
shredded mozzarella cheese
This was just GREAT! One change is that I used uncooked shells -- easier to stuff. Then covered with tomato sauce and baked according to directions. Came out perfect.
I guess I was expecting more cheese shells by the name, these should be called spinach shells with a little cheese
Great recipe - just a few small suggestions - one is to layer the bottom of your baking dish w/spaghetti sauce and layer the shells on top of that - and definitely add some shredded mozzarella to the filling. I also use fresh spinach vs. frozen. Top w/sauce and mozzarella. Delicious - plus they make wonderful leftovers and keep well frozen!
This was a real crowd pleaser and it was very simple to prepare. The fat and calories could be reduced by using low fat cheeses, and next time I make it I'll only use half the box of shells since there wasn't enough stuffing for the entire pound.
This is a great simple recipe except for one problem, I used a box of Barilla Jumbo Shells 12oz size and there was not nearly enough filling for them, only filled 1/2 of them. So, either double the filling amount or use only half the box, I can't help but wonder how "Kimber" was able to fill a 1lb box of shells with this amount. The remaining half cooked shells I have I will fill with a salmon (canned) filling recipe I use often, topped with Alfredo sauce. Thanks anyway Kimber.
very tasty...i used fresh spinach, just chopped it up and added it to the sausage after it was browned to wilt it
I followed the recipe exactly except I used more spaghetti sauce and this was fantastic.
Very Yummy! The only thing I did differently was to omit the sausage. Also added a touch of parsley to the ricotta mixture. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe.
