Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
This is a very easy recipe that is actually pretty good. I made a few modifications -and next time I will make a few more. I like spinach but the spinach very much overwhelmed the ricotta cheese. Next time I would add 2 containers of ricotta cheese to the 2 packages of spinach. I like the flavor the fenel gives but I really do NOT like biting into a fenel seed! So next time those suckers are getting CRUSHED before I add them! I added minced garlic instead of cloves, and I used more spaghetti sauce than the recipe calls for. I also added mozzarella cheese on the top along with parmesan. Instead of boiling the shells until they are super soft and pliable I soaked them in boiling water until they were still firm- but moveble- this made it soooo much easier to fill! but yet they cooked all the way through in the oven. I also added the mixture into a ziploc bag and cut the corner off the bag to fill the shells- works fairly well if you do not have a piping bag! Plus you can get more filling into the shells and it's a let less mess- and looks more presentable and uniform!

Honey Barbecued Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
VERY yummy! My husband thought this was wonderful! The recipe was soo easy too! I actually tripled the ingredients for the glaze- I put the ribs in the oven right away, mixed the glaze and then did a thorough glazing after the mixture was done. After about an hour I pulled the ribs out of the oven, drained the liquid from the bottom and then smothered on some more glaze. When there was about 15 min left in cooking time I added some more glaze mixture. YUM!
