      This was an awesome recipe, I doubled it, and froze half of the shells for another time. The flavor was amazing and just what I was looking for, as it was a hit with the whole family!

      This is very good! However, I added about 6ozs. Parmesan Cheese to the other cheese mixture of ricotta and mozzarella. Also, I placed a final layer of mozzarella cheese on the casserole and cooked it until the cheese was bubbly and slightly browned. YUMMY!!

      I was inspired to make this dish by the beautiful photo by Marsha. I made my own marinara sauce, very easy and skipped the spinach because I'm the only one that likes it and the recent scare too. It was delicious. The amounts of cheese and their combination was perfect.I will be making this often for us and for company. thanks Donna S. for a wonderful recipe.
