Baked Sausage and Spinach Stuffed Shells

Do you need an easy supper to make in advance? Check out this recipe I am using today for mine.

Ingredients

1 12 oz box jumbo shells

1 lb sausage of your choice

1 16 oz low-fat cottage cheese

2 c Italian shredded cheese

1 c grated Parmesan cheese

1 egg

2 c cut spinach

1 tbsp dried oregano

1 tsp garlic salt

1 tbsp ground flax-seeds

1 16 oz spaghetti sauce

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 375 Degrees (F).

Boil water in a large sauce pan. Add shells to boiling water and cook to a tender state but do not overcook. Brown the sausage in a saute’ pan. Mix together the cheeses, spinach, garlic salt, oregano, flax-seed, and egg. Lastly, add the cooked sausage and stir well.

In your 9 x13 pan, line the bottom with spaghetti sauce. Stuff the shells with cheese, sausage and spinach filling. Top with spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle with cheese and oregano and  bake for 40-45 minutes.

Side note:  If you wish to add or hide additional veggetables, this is a great dish to do it with. You can easily hide riced or mashed cauliflower, mashed butternut or acorn squash and pumpkin to this mixture.

No one will know these ingredients have been added, but you can enrich your meal with additional nutritional value without your picky eaters even knowing it.

Also, if you have left overs from this meal try roasting a spaghetti squash and serve with your leftovers.

Happy Eating!!! ENJOY
