I really enjoyed this recipe. I made just a few changes and additions. I substituted ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese, and added some garlic and a little salt to the spinach mixture. I also only used one red bell pepper, as I think two would have been overwhelming. It turned out really well - my whole house loved it.
Very good! Could use some garlic and cook spinach before baking :)
I sautéed the spinach first in garlic... A touch I highly recommend! Delicious!
This was a quick and easy recipe. I didnt change a thing and thought it was great. Cottage cheese is a great change from the usual ricotta in most recipes and red pepper added great flavor.
We had to add a LOT more sauce to prevent the shells from getting hard. (pic posted) I made 2 batches. I am not a fan of cooked spinach, but thought we could give this a try, see if the flavor is hidden enough. there was waaaay too much (which is why I made 2 batches) With my 2nd batch I ran out of spaghetti sauce and had to get a can of mushroom spaghetti sauce ::bleh:: which is all we had in the house. My fiance would prefer meat in his shells. I thought they were pretty good though. DEFINATELY had to add garlic. I took the advice and sauteed them with the spinach.
Best shells I have made. Substitued ricotta cheese for cottage cheese. Use Bertolli's organic olive oil, garlic, basil sauce. Very cheesy & flavorful.
Made these last night! Amazingness! simple, delicious, and fun to eat! my kids also loved them, so thats a five star rating!
This was very good. I went by the recipe but with the advice of others, added garlic. I used fat free cottage cheese and reduced fat shredded mozzarella. I also made half with ground beef added because my husband likes meat in everything. I actually thought the plain spinach/cheese without the meat was better. I will be making this again.
