Ingredients

How to make it

  • Brown ground beef with onions, garlic - drain fat
  • Meanwhile prepare shells
  • Add tomatoes and seasoning to meat - bring to simmer
  • In bowl mix cottage cheese, spinach, parmesan, and basil (s&p to taste)
  • When shells are ready, remove and place on waxed paper (or whatever) so they drain and don't stick together till cool to touch
  • Pour half the meat sauce into casserole dish
  • Stuff shells with cheese/spinach mixture and place on top of meat sauce
  • Cover shells with remaining meat sauce and top with mozzarella
  • Bake at 350 for approximately 40 minutes or until desired bubbliness (yeah, it's a word!)
  • Let sit a bit before digging in.
  • Great with a green salad and crusty bread - Enjoy!!!

    One of the kid's favorite meals of all time. I'll have to make a batch just for her and prove that mom is better than frozen!

    Wonderful - I love these - I often buy them frozen when in a hurry but the next time I think I will make them and freeze them to have them on hand. I have a FoodSaver and it is the greatest thing for freezing left overs. Your recipes are the greatest and so are the food porn pictures!
