  • Stuffed Shells = Stuffed Tummies

    Coming up with recipes that will satisfy both the little and big tummies in my house is a never ending task.  I need things that are quick, easy, kinda messy(because it’s more fun to eat!) but filling.  So, when our friends invited us over for dinner one evening and served stuffed shells my mommy meter went off loudly.  I knew that I had found yet another staple for the K family.

     
    Roma can eat almost two of these puppies and Cylas eats two without a problem.  This recipe will make a full 9×13 casserole dish and an additional 8×8.  Plenty for a family of 4-6 people depending on how big your eaters are.

    Stuffed Shells
    • 1 pound Ground Beef (I use turkey, it’s much healthier)
    • 1 whole Onion
    • 1 box Jumbo Pasta Shells
    • 2 whole Eggs
    • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon Basil
    • ½ cups Parmesan Cheese
    • 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, Divided
    • 1 jar Spaghetti Sauce (10oz)
    • 1 small jar Spaghetti Sauce
    • 1 cup finely chopped spinach
    • 2 dashes salt
    • 1 clove garlic, diced

    Brown the ground beef turkey, garlic and onion together while boiling the pasta shells as directed on the box.
    Mix eggs, seasonings, Parmesan cheese, and 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese together in a large mixing bowl. Once the meat is cooked, drained, and cooled, mix it into the cheese mixture.
    Stuff the pasta shells with the meat and cheese mixture and place in a greased baking dish. After all the shells have been stuffed and placed in the baking dish, pour the spaghetti sauce over the shells. Cover with the remaining mozzarella cheese.
    Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.

    I serve this with garlic bread and nice spring greens salad with cherry tomatoes, avocado, garlic vinaigrette dressing and a dash of salt and pepper.   Both of my children eat the salad, and even if they didn’t there is that hint of spinach in the shell mixture.  Cheers!
    Let me know what you all think

    Hey Misha, I tried this recipe here at the Robinson house and it got a big "thumbs up!" My husband and I loved them…Dylan and Maddox although a little hesitant at first, tried them and ate a few bites. So I will definitely be making this dish again…thanks for sharing! :)
