Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Shells – Sea of Savings

chicken-spinach-stuffed-shells-23

This is one of our family’s most favorite recipes!  I love that it’s quick, healthy and you can make it ahead of time. :-)

Ingredients:

1 (12-ounce) box uncooked jumbo pasta shells (if all of yours survive the boil this is enough, to be safe you may want 1 1/2 boxes)
2 cups chopped cooked chicken – sometimes I leave out the chicken for a meatless dinner
2 cups fresh chopped spinach
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (15oz) container ricotta cheese
1 (8oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (5oz) package shredded Parmesan cheese (about 1 2/3 cups)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 Tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 (26oz) jar prepared spaghetti sauce

Directions:

  1. Cook shells according to package directions. Be careful not to overcook them or they will tear easily when trying to fill them. Drain and set shells out individually on a cutting board or baking sheet so that they don’t stick together.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease two 9×13 baking dishes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine chicken and all the rest of the ingredients except mozzarella and spaghetti sauce. Stir in 1 cup mozzarella. Spoon into shells.
  4. Spread half of spaghetti sauce into prepared baking dishes. Arrange shells over sauce; top with remaining sauce. Cover tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil. If you are freezing one of the 9×13 prepared pans, freeze it after this step. Include a baggy of the remaining mozzarella for when you cook it.  If you are making this ahead of time just put it in the fridge until ready to bake.
  5. Bake, covered, for 40 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella. Bake for 5 to 10 more minutes.
  6. Makes 8-10 servings.Repin it button
