I was walking around Costco last week doing the usual monthly top of things we usually grab, when a tub of Ricotta caught my eye and an instant craving for Ricotta and Spinach pasta took over.

There was already a bag of spinach in the cart, something I buy weekly as it’s so handy for adding some quick speed foods to dinner whether it be pasta, curry or even breakfast, so all I needed was the pasta shells.

Jumbo Pasta Shells are perfect for stuffing with yummy fillings for amazing pasta dishes, they are large and less fiddly than the usual cannelloni tubes, although if you can’t get large pasta shells, feel free to substitute with a similar pasta that can be stuffed.

As with any spinach dish, garlic is a must, they are just two ingredients that pair together amazingly well. I also add some onion, because well onion is delicious in whatever you are making.

90g of Ricotta is a Healthy Extra A and oh my is it good. It’s perfect in sweet dishes as well as savoury. Have you tried some ricotta, drizzled with warmed honey and fresh fruit? HEAVENLY!!

This Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Pasta Shells serves 4 people but I only use 3 servings of ricotta, so that we can also get in a healthy extra A serving of Parmesan for the top of the bake. A pasta bake dish, just needs some kind of melty cheese don’t you think? and well Parmesan really packs the flavour too.

You need to make sure you parboil the pasta until al dente before stuffing, and then it can be placed on top of that yummy tomato based sauce and sprinkled with the parmesan cheese before being baked in the oven.

For the sauce that the pasta shells sit on. I use passata, stock, onion and garlic with a little pinch of mixed herbs, simmered for about 20 minutes before adding to my to blend the sauce until smooth. Any blender will do the trick, even an immersion blender if that’s all you have.

I bake this Ricotta and Spinach Pasta Shells in my , it’s just the right size for arranging all the filled pasta shells and I can cover it with the lid for the first bake part, before removing to finish off. It looks super pretty too, served up in the middle of the table for everyone to dig into with a yummy side salad.
