Great recipe. I especially loved that I cooked sneak in Spinach and my kids didn't think twice about eating it. I did add some additional seasoning (garlic salt & italian seasoning). I also subsitutoed a mix of Itailian cheeses for the cheddar cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown sausage in large skillet. Stir in onion, garlic, mushrooms and basil and cook until onion is tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Drain excess fat.
  3. Add spinach and soup to the meat mixture. Stir in sour cream.
  4. Arrange cooked pasta shells in single layer in 9-by-13-by2 inch baking pan.
  5. Stuff the meat mixture into shells. Sprinkle with cheeses. Pour cream over the top.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until heated through.
  7. NOTE: The cream in this recipe creates a small amount of sauce as the shells bake. For more sauce, remove the cooked shells to a serving dish; transfer the sauce to a saucepan. Add more cream; thicken with flour or cornstarch. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. If necessary, season salt and pepper.
