Stuffed Shells

Recipe Information
Pasta shells stuffed with cheese and spinach


  • One package of jumbo pasta shells, suitable for stuffing
  • 2 cups (475 ml) of cottage cheese
  • 3 cups (700 ml) shredded mozerella cheese
  • 1 10 oz (280 grm). box frozen spinach, defrost and squeeze well
  • 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
  • Boil 2 quarts (1900 ml) water and add jumbo shells.
  • Drain well.
  • Mix cheeses and well squeezed thawed spinach.
  • Spoon into jumbo shells and lay into one layer in a greased casserole dish or baking pan.
  • Pour spaghetti sauce over all.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes to one hour.
This makes two 9x13 pans. I freeze one without the spaghetti sauce. It freezes well. To use, defrost completely and add sauce. This also reheats well for next day leftovers.
