    BecR's Note:

    Half the pasta shells are filled with a ricotta filling, the other half are filled with spinach and meat in a lovely tomato rosé sauce (marinara sauce with cream added). Delicious! Slightly adapted from Anna's Table.

    Ricotta Filling

    • 2 -3 cups marinara spaghetti sauce
    • 1/4 cup cream
    • 2 -3 tablespoons red wine (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese, for topping

      Stir in the ground beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is cooked through (about 7-8 minutes).
    4. 4
      Add the chopped spinach to meat and cook for an additional minute (you can reserve about 4 tablespoons of spinach for the topping).
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and add the shredded cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Make the Rosé Sauce: Stir together the marinara sauce with the cream and red wine.
    7. 7
      Spread about 1 cup of the rosé sauce evenly in the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish.
    8. 8
      Use a teaspoon to fill half the pasta shells with the Ricotta Filling; fill the remaining pasta shells with the Meat and Spinach Filling.
    9. 9
      Arrange filled shells in a single layer in the prepared baking dish.
    10. 10
      Pour rosé sauce over the pasta shells and top with grated Parmesan cheese (and the reserved spinach, if desired).
    11. 11
      Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 minutes.
