Alyssa Collazo: Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Shells♥

Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Shells♥

One of my favorite things to do is try new pasta recipes. Why? Because pasta recipes are usually easy to follow and my family loves and I mean LOVES pasta. Lately Pinterest has been my go to for all my pasta needs. From lasagna soup to my families new favorite Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Shells, you can never go wrong. But my recipe wouldn't be complete without using RAGÚ and can I just tell you, their new line RAGÚ Homestyle is delicious. Its thick and hearty texture hugs every noodle, and provides a delicious made-from-scratch taste! 

This recipe is so easy to follow and I'm so excited to share it with you. I used RAGÚ Thick & Hearty Mushroom. This sauce paired perfectly with my Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Shells. I especially love how thick the sauce is, my stuffed shells sat perfectly on top of this hearty sauce and boy did it make a difference.

Here is the recipe for my Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Shells

Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Shells

Ingredients:
1lb of Italian Sausage
3 packed cups of Spinach
1 package of Jumbo Pasta Shells
2 cups of Ricotta 
8oz bag of Mozzarella 
1/2 cup of Parmesan 
1 Egg
2 tsp of Garlic Powder
1 tsp of Oregano, Dried. 

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet over medium heat, brown and crumble the sausage. Drain any excess fat and remove from heat. In the same saucepan, cook spinach until wilted or about 1-2 minutes.
Cook your Jumbo Pasta shells according to package.
In a mixing bowl, combine the Ricotta, 4ozs of Mozzarella, 1/2 cup of Parmesan, Egg, Oregano, and Garlic Powder. Stir in the Spinach.
Coat the bottom of a baking dish with the entire jar of RAGÚ Thick & Hearty Mushroom sauce. Spoon the cheese mixture into the shells and place shells open side up.
Sprinkle the sausage over the top of the shells. Then sprinkle with the remaining 4oz of Mozzarella.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. If you like a cheesy crust, you may broil it uncovered for 3-5 minutes (watch closely). Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Pretty easy right? You may look at the ingredient list and think OMG, but this is stuff I usually keep in my cabinets and fridge. Plus, with this recipe you can add more veggies like broccoli or even make it with chicken. As long as you have RAGÚ Homestyle you're good to go! Be sure to check out RAGÚ for more delicious recipes.

Do you have any RAGÚ inspired recipes?
