  • 1 pack Jumbo Pasta Shells
  • 32 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 1.5 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • ¾ Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Jar Marinara Sauce (I use the large jar of Rao’s)
  • 1 .5 Cups Spinach, chopped
  • 1 lb Ground Italian Sausage
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Boil water in a large pot for pasta.
  2. Heat your skillet to medium heat, add sausage and crumble. Cook until browned throughout and drain any excess fat. Remove from heat.
  3. When boiling, add a generous pinch of salt to your water and add the shells. Cook until shells are pliable but still feel hard, around 9-10 minutes. You will cook for a few minutes less time than package instructions because these will continue to soften in the oven. Drain and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  4. Chop spinach finely. In a medium sized bowl, add the egg, spinach, ricotta, ½ cup of the mozzarella, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano, salt and fresh cracked pepper. Add the cooled sausage and stir to combine.
  5. Pour the marinara sauce into a 9×13 baking dish. Stuff each shell with your sausage mixture and place open side up into the dish. Layer top of the shells with remaining mozzarella cheese, cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the cover and bake 5 more minutes until cheese is bubbly and dish is heated through. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
