We were in the grocery store the other day, and Junior asked if I would make stuffed shells for dinner some night. I said, sure, even though I had never done it before. I bought the shells and some cheeses (I was guessing which kinds I would need) and came home to my computer to find a recipe. After lots of searching, I took different ingredients from several recipes and kind of came up with my own.
16 oz. ricotta cheese
9 oz. package frozen chopped spinach
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. parsley
mushrooms (canned, diced pretty small)
I mixed all the ingredients together with my mixer on medium. Most recipes said to mix by hand, but I couldn't get the texture I wanted, so I threw it into my mixer. I than stuffed the shells I cooked and cooled with the cheese mixture. I put them in a baking dish with a little sauce underneath so they wouldn't stick to the pan, and some on top, too. I baked it for 25 minutes at 400 degrees. (I didn't cover the pans, so they dried out a little...next time I will cover them for the first 20 minutes)
