    KPD's Note:

    i love the asiago cream sauce! you could also use a red sauce. if pancetta is hard to find or you're on a budget, use bacon!! another giada recipe! i tweaked it quite a bit.

    Shells

    Sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. 2
      For the shells: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Drain pasta. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and allow to cool before stuffing.
    3. 3
      Warm 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Remove the pancetta from the pan with a slotted spoon and transfer to a large bowl.
    4. 4
      Add the spinach, onion, garlic, parsley, ricotta cheese, asiago cheese, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir to combine.
    5. 5
      Stuff the shells with about 2 tablespoons of the spinach mixture each and place the stuffed shells in a large, buttered baking dish.
    6. 6
      For the sauce: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
    7. 7
      Add the cream and bring to a simmer.
    8. 8
      Turn the heat to very low and add the 2 cups asiago cheese, parsley, and pepper. Stir until the cheese is dissolved.
    9. 9
      Pour the sauce over the shells. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup asiago cheese.
    10. 10
      Bake, covered, until golden on top, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
