Course Main course
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
- 25 fl oz or 700 ml marinara sauce
- 12 large pasta shells plus 2-3 extra ones in case some of the shells break during cooking
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 17 oz or 500 g fresh spinach
- 9 oz or 250 g ricotta cheese
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- grated hard cheese to serve
- Preheat the oven to 350 F or 180 C. Take a big rectangular baking pan (I used a 13 x 9 inch pan (33 x 22 cm) or individual oval-shaped ramekins. Fill the pan (ramekins) with marinara sauce. Bake for about 10 minutes to heat through.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta shells until al dente, as per instructions on the package. Drain well. Heat a lug of olive oil in a large skillet and sautée minced garlic until fragrant. Add spinach and cook for about 7 minutes or until all the leaves turn dark green. Drain it well, removing all the excess moisture (you can keep the spinach water for soups or sauces).
- Combine the spinach with ricotta cheese and stuff shells with the mixture, using about 1 tablespoon of stuffing for each shell. Place the stuffed shells on top of the marinara sauce. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
