Artichoke & Spinach Stuffed Shells

Let Chef John be your creative inspiration. In this video, Chef John cooks without a net, using leftover spinach and artichoke dip to make a stuffed pasta dish. He takes his tasty dip and combines it with some ricotta cheese and crushed red pepper flakes. To brighten flavors, he adds some fresh lemon juice; and to tighten things up a little, stirs in a gently beaten egg. And there’s your filling! A simple béchamel sauce and Parmesan cheese top the stuffed shells. Then it’s just a quick bake in the oven. Serve this as a side dish with some Italian sausage. In this video, you’ll also discover Chef John’s philosophy for cooking with leftovers: “However it comes out, that’s how it’s supposed to be.” In this case, perfectly delicious.

Chef John....You Rock! I could just sit and listen to you as you cook all night! Can you come to my house and cook for me? (just kidding!) But you do have a very calm, fun, and easy going voice that's hypnotizing! I'm going to make your stuffed shells this week end. Come on over - (just kidding!!).

I love cooking with leftovers. Chef John is right - it doesn't matter how it turns out have fun and experiment. If you had a few leftover cocktail shrimps I bet they'd be great chopped up and added in.
