With three kinds of cheese and plenty of sweet Italian sausage, this easy stuffed shells recipe is one you'll make again and again.

Ingredients

1
package (12 oz.) jumbo pasta shells
2
tablespoons olive oil
1/2
cup finely chopped onion
3/4
lb. bulk sweet Italian sausage
2
cloves garlic, minced
1
large egg
15
oz. whole or part-skim ricotta cheese
1
box (9 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
3/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
4
oz. fresh mozzarella, grated
1/2
teaspoon kosher salt
1/2
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1
jar (32 oz.) tomato sauce with basil

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add pasta shells and cook according to package instructions. Drain shells in a colander and rinse under cold water. Set on paper towels to try.
  • 2 Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add sausage and cook until no longer pink (about 5 minutes more), stirring frequently and breaking it into smaller pieces as you go. Add garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Remove pan from heat and allow sausage to cool.
  • 3 In a small bowl, lightly beat egg. Add ricotta, spinach, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, mozzarella, salt, pepper and the cooled sausage mixture, and stir until blended.
  • 4 Spread 1 cup of tomato sauce over the bottom of a 3-quart baking dish. Fill pasta shells with sausage-cheese mixture and arrange in a single layer. Spread remaining tomato sauce over stuffed shells. Cover dish with foil and bake until hot and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
  • 5 Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes longer.
