Ricotta, Mozzarella, and Parmesan stuffed shells

Recipe Ingredients for Ricotta Stuffed Shells

6 oz Jumbo Shells Pasta
1 teaspoon salt
15 ounce part skim ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
7 oz reduced fat mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or mint (or 2 teaspoons dried)
26 oz Mario Batali Tomato Basil sauce
1 package frozen spinach

Recipe Directions for Ricotta Stuffed Shells

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and the pasta shells to the water. Boil the pasta shells until they are tender, but still a little firm (al dente), about 10 minutes. Meanwhile make the filling (step 2). When pasta is done, drain the shells, run under cold water to stop the cooking process and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl stir together: the ricotta cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and parsley or mint. Pour about 1 cup of pasta sauce into a 9x12 casserole dish. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the ricotta filling into each cooked pasta shell. Place the filled shells, side by side, (three lengthwise rows of 6 shells per row), into the casserole dish. At this point, the dish can be made and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

  3. Spoon the remaining pasta sauce on top of the shells and bake uncovered until bubbly, about 30 minutes. If using refrigerated shells, allow 40 minutes baking time.
