Last night I decided to try something new- stuffed shells. The recipe is from a co-worker and was pretty easy.
You will need:
- big stuffed shells
- 15oz ricotta
- 1/2 cup Parmesan
- finley cut spinach
- finley cut broccoli
- red sauce of your liking
First cook the pasta shells. Once they are fully cooked, drain and run cool water over them. Then set aside.
Mix together ricotta, Parmesan, spinach & broccoli- stuff into the shells one by one- I used a small spoon which helped make it easier because the shells roll up and you have to hold them open and stuff at the same time.
Next spread the red sauce on the bottom of a baking pan, place stuffed shells on top and then put the rest of the red sauce on on top of the shells and some mozzarella.
Bake in the oven at 400′ for 15-20 minutes- I then broiled them for a minute to get the golden cheese look.
We made Trader Joe’s meat balls & broccoli as our sides.
The past was good, slightly bland- so I plan to spice it up a bit the next time I make it- perhaps some garlic or onion for flavor!
