This is only the second time I've made stuffed shells. I think they are pretty good, but I also wish there were something other than ricotta that could be used (and not cottage cheese). I'm really not a big fan of ricotta. I don't think the kids are either because they didn't eat much. Do y'all have a suggestion for a substitution for ricotta?
What you need:
- 1-2 boxes jumbo shells
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 4-6 cups pasta sauce
- 2 (15 oz) cartons ricotta cheese
- 1 tbsp. parsley
- 1/2 cup chopped spinach (I didn't have any)
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 2 cups shredded Italian blend cheese
Add sauce and let simmer while you prepare the pasta al dente. Drain pasta.
In a bowl, mix ricotta, parsley, spinach and Parmesan
Pour meat sauce over stuffed shells and top with Italian cheese
