Sausage and Spinach Shells

Looking for a quick dinner that is easy and fresh? Look no further than this hearty pasta dish! It has spinach hidden with sausage that your kids will actually eat! This was so easy to throw together and allow to cook in the oven. I made side salads for my husband and I as well.

We are super busy decluttering and getting our house ready to be photographed to be put on the market to sell. Making easy dishes like this one has been a saving grace. It has been utter chaos here and we even had to rent a storage unit to make our house look bigger in each room by not having all the surfaces and closets filled. What a task! *Fingers crossed* our house sells fast!


- 24 jumbo noodle shells, cooked according to package
- 1 lb. sausage
- 15 oz. ricotta cheese
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. salt
- dash nutmeg
- 10 oz. frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed
- 1 large egg
- 26 oz. marinara sauce
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a large baking dish, coat the bottom with marinara sauce.
3. In a skillet, brown your sausage.
4. In a large bowl, mix your sausage, ricotta, salt and pepper, nutmeg, and spinach together.
5. Fill your cooked jumbo shells and place in a row in your baking dish.
6. Top your shells with the remainder of the sauce and place mozzarella cheese on top of each one.
7. Bake for 35 minutes covered with foil, and then an additional 10 minutes uncovered.
