Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…Spinach Stuffed Shells

by Lisa on April 9, 2012

I recently began to reorganize my box of recipe cards.  I also copied and added many recipes which I had torn from a magazine, or copied from friends.  While doing this I rediscovered recipes I had not thought of in several years.  One such recipe was the Spinach Stuffed Shells which a dear friend prepared and brought to my family just days after I gave birth to Grace.  I remember how much we enjoyed that meal.  So, today I am sharing the recipe.


Spinach Stuffed Shells

  • 1 – 12 oz pack of jumbo pasta shells
  • 2- 9oz packages frozen creamed spinach with cooking pouch
  • 15 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1- 32oz jar spaghetti sauce
  1. About 1 1/2 hours before serving, prepare the shells as directed.  Drain well. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the spinach as directed then pour into a large bowl and cool slightly.
  3. Stir in both mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, salt, and pepper.
  4. Stuff each shell with mixture and arrange in casserole dish.
  5. Brown hamburger meat, drain any fat.  Then add the spaghetti sauce.  Spoon sauce over the shells.
  6. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Makes about 25 shells.

Your stuffed shells look marvelous! I love stuffed shells and I often make them for new mothers, because in a pinch a new mother can eat them with one hand like a taco while holding a baby. 🙂
