Number of Servings: 32


    1 lb. Ricotta Cheese (part skim)
    1 lb. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
    3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
    1 lb. frozen spinach, drained (squeeze out as much water as possible)
    1 egg
    Black pepper to taste
    1 tsp Basil
    1/3 lb. Italian sausage
    1 lb. Hamburger, lean
    1 1/2 cup onion, diced
    1 box (12 oz) jumbo pasta shells
    5 cups spaghetti sauce (I used Ragu with Mushrooms-48 oz)
    garlic clove


Brown the sausage & hamburger with onion, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and let cool.

Cook pasta according to package, drain and let cool enough to handle.

In a large bowl, mix Ricotta cheese, spinach, mozzarella (save some for topping), parmesan, eggs, pepper, basil and garlic. Mix with hands until it is consistent, uniform, and no lumps exist. Add cooled meat mixture and mix again. (The ingredients are supposed to be cool so that the cheese doesn't melt)

Fill each pasta shell with mixture. Fill casserole dishes 1/4 of the way with spaghetti sauce (individual serving casseroles, or 1 or 2 large ones). Place stuffed shells in sauce and top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Spoon a little sauce over shells. Bake in 450 oven for about 10 minutes or until done (about 20-25 minutes if mixture has been refrigerated at 425 degrees.)

Nutritional info represents 1 pasta shell.

Makes approx 32 shells.
