I have this problem. I want to take pictures of the food I make, so I can post the recipe and have a visual. Because a visual makes the food so much more appealing. But I forget. Or, in this case, I took two “before” pictures, and one was blurry and lopsided.
But I’ll share the recipe anyway. Because it’s super easy, but one that feels a little fancier when done.
Here’s what you need:
1 box jumbo pasta shells
1 tub of ricotta cheese (smaller size)
Half a bag of frozen spinach
1 Cup Mozzarella
Step 1 – Boil the shells. I usually use about half the box.
Step 2 – Combine the ricotta, spinach, egg, and mozzarella in a bowl. This is why I love this recipe because you can do whatever you want here, really. One time I forgot the egg, and things turned out. Sometimes I’ll add mushrooms. Most recently I substituted mozzarella for shredded parmesan. You should also add some Italian seasoning if you have it.
Step 3 – Pour a little sauce into the bottom of a baking pan. Stuff the shells and place them in a pan. If you pinch the ends a little, they should open pretty nicely.
Step 4 – Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. And then eat them.
See? Really simple. Stuffing them can take a little bit of time, but it’s usually not too bad. Half the box generally makes enough for two people plus some leftovers.
