    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 10
    20 jumbo pasta shells
    1 (15 oz) container Hy-Vee part-skim ricotta cheese
    1 Hy-Vee large egg
    ½ c. Hy-Vee shredded Parmesan cheese
    1 (8 oz) package Hy-Vee shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
    1 (10 oz) package Hy-Vee frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
    2 tsp. Hy-Vee Italian seasoning
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee salt
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper
    1 (26 oz) jar Hy-Vee traditional pasta sauce


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
    2. Prepare shells according to package directions. Rinse with cold water. Drain well.
    3. Meanwhile, to make the filling, combine the ricotta, egg, Parmesan and 1 cup of mozzarella in a large bowl. Stir in the spinach, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
    4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the filling into each pasta shell. Place the filled shells in the prepared dish.
    5. Pour the pasta sauce over the shells. Top with the remaining cup of mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, until bubbly, about 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
