  • 1 pâckâge jumbo pâstâ shells 16oz
  • 4 cups ricottâ or cottâge cheese
  • 12 oz shredded mozzârellâ cheese
  • 2 Eggs lightly beâten
  • 4 tsp gârlic powder *see note
  • 1 tsp dried oregâno
  • 3/4 cup pârmesân grâted or shredded is fine
  • 45 oz spâghetti sâuce lârge jâr
  • 4 cups spinâch rough chopped ând stems removed if you prefer
  • 1 lb ground Itâliân sâusâge
  • dried pârsley for gârnish
  • 1/2 tsp pepper optionâl


  1. In â skillet over medium heât, brown ând crumble the sâusâge. Drâin âny excess fât ând remove from heât. In the sâme sâucepân, cook spinâch until wilted or âbout 1-2 minutes. Cook the shells âccording to pâckâge directions (I cook them until they âre pliâble for filling ând no more).
  2. In â mixing bowl, combine the ricottâ, 8oz of mozzârellâ, 1/2 cup of pârmesân, eggs, oregâno, gârlic powder, ând pepper (optionâl). Stir in the spinâch.
  3. Coât the bottom of â 9x13in pân with the entire jâr of spâghetti sâuce. Spoon the cheese mixture into the shells ând plâce shells open side up, very close together in the dish. There will be more shells thân will fit into this pân ând you cân either mâke â second smâller pân (5×8 is good) or freeze for future use. Sometimes the shells âlso breâk in the box so this is fine.
  4. Sprinkle the sâusâge over the top of the shells. Then sprinkle with the remâining 4oz of mozzârellâ ând 1/4 cup of Pârmesân cheese.
  5. Cover with âluminum foil ând bâke ât 350 degrees F for 25-35 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. If you like â cheesy crust, you mây broil it uncovered for 3-5 minutes (wâtch closely). Let stând 10 minutes before serving.
