    LOVE Giada De Laurentiis . . . this is one of her great recipes. LOTS of spinach- can cut in half if you are not a huge fan- but yummy none the less!

      I made this tonight. Wonderful. I followed Kitty Kat Cook's suggestions with the cheese. It worked beautifully. I was putting this here for safe keeping. I was happy to see it already here! I got 25 shells. LOVELY.

      I actually watched this episode and it looked so yummy on screen. I made it last night, I loved it. Thank you for posting it. This makes about 20-30 shells. One last tip: in an effort to save $$, instead of just asiago cheese, I bought the Kraft asiago, romano, parmesan grated cheese, one container is almost enough for the sauce and the shells; it's just about 1/4 cup short.
