I made this dish a few years ago and it was a big hit! I don't know why I haven't made it since, but it is now on the grocery list for next week!
- 6 oz. fresh SPINACH, chopped
- 1 clove GARLIC, minced
- 2 Tbs OLIVE OIL
- 15 oz. RICOTTA CHEESE
- 15 oz. can ARTICHOKE HEARTS, drained & chopped
- 1 & 1/3 cup PARMESAN CHEESE
- 20 LARGE PASTA SHELLS
- 2 cups MARINARA SAUCE
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray and then spread 1 cup of the marinara sauce in the bottom. Cut off one of the bottom corners of the baggie to create an opening about the size of a nickel. Once the pasta shells are cooked, squeeze the filling from the baggie into each shell and place in the baking dish on top of the sauce. Once all of the shells have been filled, cover them with the second cup of marinara sauce.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese on top of the shells and sauce. If you want it to be extra cheesy you can also sprinkle some mozzarella cheese on top! Bake for 30-40 minutes!
