Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Shells

Craving Italian Food for dinner?
How about making some stuffed shells!

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Shells

For the filling:
1 8 oz container of ricotta cheese
1 egg
1 bundle of fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup fresh parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 teaspoon or more of grated nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

Cook the shells by boiling them in water for about 7 minutes. You don't want to cook them all the way. Then drain the shells. Once they are cool enough to pick up you can begin stuffing them. Pour a little pasta sauce in the bottom of baking dish. Place a spoonful of filling in each shell and then pinch the shell closed. Line the shells in rows in the baking dish.

When all the shells have been stuffed, pour your favorite pasta sauce over the top. Sprikle a little parmesan cheese on top. Bake at 375 for about 25 - 30 minutes.

Trust me, this makes a very nice dinner.
