Stuffed Spinach And Ricotta Stuffed Pasta Shells Recipe

via The Cooking Foodie

Fill a  large pot with water, add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil.

In the meantime heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add your chopped onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add your garlic and sauté for a further 2 minutes.

Next, add your fresh spinach to the pan and cook. Stir occasionally until the leaves begin to wilt. This should be about 5 minutes.

Drain the liquids from the pan and allow to cool. Next, chop the spinach mixture and transfer it to a large bowl.

Into the same bowl add your ricotta cheese, grated parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, nutmeg and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag.

When the water is boiling add your pasta. Cook your pasta according to the packet directions and it’s al dente’. Drain your pasta and pop it in a bowl of cold water.

Preheat your oven to 360F (180C).

Pour 1/2 a cup of the tomato sauce mixture into the base of the baking dish. Using your piping bag, stuff each pasta shell with the spinach and ricotta mixture.

In a large baking dish, carefully arrange the pasta shells in a single layer, with the open side facing up.

To each stuffed pasta shell add one baby mozzarella ball. Pour the remaining tomato sauce on top of the pasta shells. Over the mixture sprinkle cheese and cover with foil.

Bake for 20 minutes in the oven. Remove the foil and bake for a further 10-15 minutes or until the top is golden. Be careful not to overcook or burn.
