Directions

  1. Cook shells according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over meium-high heat, cook oil, spinach, onion, and garlic; add about 1/2 cup of the pasta water (or more if needed) so the ingredients will blend easily. Cook until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add seasonings. Turn off heat and let mixture start to cool. Stir in Parmesan, Ricotta, and eggs.
  3. Pour 1 cup of pasta sauce in 13x9-inch dish.
  4. Fill shells with spinach mixture. I used a 1 1/2" cookie scoop. Pour remaining sauce over or around shells; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until heated through. Or cover with plastic instead of foil and microwave 8 minutes or so on HI.
