Stuffed Shells (with Spinach and Cheese)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Laura O.

A really unique stuffed shells recipe. I usually make this for company. The original recipe included one pound of bulk Italian sausage in the stuffing, which I have omitted for my own personal tastes. I'm getting hungry just typing this recipe and remembering how good it is!
