Very tasty and easy to put together! I made a minor substitution...used ricotta mixed with egg in place of the cottage cheese. I didn't miss the meat in this one at all! Thanks Miss Annie, this will be made often!

This was really yummy! I needed more sauce, though. My spaghetti sauce can was only 26 oz. (ever notice how "they" start w/ large sizes, then gradually get smaller, but keep the price the same??!!) SO - some of my shells burned to the sides of the crockpot. (I was gone all day, or would've checked on it & caught this) Also - when reheating the leftovers, they were kinda dry - so I'd recommended using at least the stated amount of spaghetti sauce. As another note here- my husband hates spinach, and ate these w/o hesitation, as did my ds's (ages 5 & 3) - so this is a "keeper!" Thanks for sharing, Miss Annie! I never tried pasta in the crockpot before. My cousin unexpectedly popped in for lunch, so I heated her a plate, and she is taking home the recipe, too! She LOVED it, as did her 5 yr old DS. So - again, my thanks!

I had no idea these stuffed shells would turn out so well cooked in a crock pot. Tasted so yummy and with very little time spent in the kitchen. Thanks so much Miss Annie. Very filling and loved that rich cheesy taste.
