Spinach and 3 Cheese Stuffed Shells

Tonight I made stuffed shells using 3 cheeses and chopped spinach. It came out wonderfully and I would highly recommend it. I didn't follow a recipe, instead just used what I had in the house. Enjoy!

1 box of jumbo shells
1 10 oz package of chopped spinach (I used about 3/4 of it but if you like a lot of spinach- use it all!)
1 15oz container of part skim ricotta cheese
1 cup of part skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, freshly shredded
1 egg

1- Cook shells according to package, drain and set aside.
2- Preheat the oven to 350.
3- In a mixing bowl combine the 3 cheeses and egg. Mix until well combined.
4- Squeeze the spinach until all moisture is removed. Add to the cheese and mix well.
5- Cover the bottom of an oven safe dish with sauce.
6- Spoon one spoonful of cheese mixture into each shell, set in the sauce in the pan, seam side up.
7- Pour some sauce over the top, sprinkle with additional mozzarella (optional).
8- Bake for 30 minutes uncovered.


  1. This looks awesome! It's been awhile since I made stuffed shells so I'll have to make this soon!

  2. I can't wait to try this recipe. We are trying to cut down on our meat consumption. This looks like a good start.
