Giant pasta shells stuffed with lots of goodies!
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Heat butter in large sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms and cook until tender. Add garlic, tomato sauce, 1 teaspoon salt and sugar and simmer for 10 minutes.
In another sauté pan cook ground beef until brown and drain juices. Add the cooked spinach to the beef and stir.
In a large bowl add eggs and ricotta cheese and mix with hand blender until smooth. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, parsley and pepper.
Add the meat and cheese stuffing together and mix well.
Pour 1/2 tomato sauce in bottom of casserole dish. Stuff each jumbo shell and place side by side in dish. Pour the rest of the tomato sauce over the top of shells.
Bake for 30 minutes uncovered and in the last 5 minutes, sprinkle Parmesan cheese over shells.
Tip: Place cooked noodles in cold water right before use to prevent noodles from sticking to each other.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
Quinoa, Black Bean and Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers
You can use either chicken or pork in this recipe. It’s so good my hubby always has to go back for more. The kids eat it up too!
