Spinach & Ricotta Stuffed Shells

My first attempt making spinach ricotta filling 20 years ago wasn’t so great. It didn’t taste like feet but the flavor was definitely off. My family (troopers for eating it) had a good attitude.

I was debating between stuffed shells vs manicotti. The stuffed shells were great & the creamy ricotta filling was on point! I made a simple cucumber salad, too. This recipe is a keeper! Below is a picture of sautéed garlic & spinach 💚
