Stuffed Pasta Shells

I was invited to come up with a recipe using Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles, and after some brain storming with one of my chef brothers we came up with something Super amazing. 

Ingredients you will need:
1 package of your favorite Jimmy Dean Crumbles
1 package of large pasta shells
1 package of garlic boursin cheese
2 large handfuls of parmesan cheese
Ricotta cheese
2 large handfuls of fresh spinach
1/2 C. milk
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Start off by boiling your shells according to package. Make sure you take them out before they get to soft! You don't want them overcooking since they will also go in the oven. Rinse them with cold water as soon as they are done to stop the cooking process. 
While the shells are boiling, mix together in a large bowl the ricotta cheese, spinach, one handful of parmesan cheese and Jimmy Dean crumbles. 

Next stuff your shells with the ricotta cheese mixture and place in an oven safe dish.
Preheat oven to 400.
While the oven is preheating, mix together one container of boursin cheese, a large handful of parmesan cheese and half of the milk in a pan on medium heat. Keep stirring and watch closely, you don't want the sauce to fully boil. Keep adding in milk until it's the consistency you want. Add some pepper and sea salt to taste. 

When the sauce is done, pour it over your pasta shells and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. 

After ten minutes, switch to broil for 1-3 minutes depending on your oven. I wanted the top to be a little crispy.

The whole family gave this recipe two thumbs up! Let me know if you decide to try it!

  1. this looks great!

  2. Yummmmm!! I've honestly been craving stuffed shells for like a month! I wonder if I could if I could get my picky 29 year old child to eat the spinach?

    1. chop it up really small! That's what I usually do, but I was fighting nap time and in a hurry but if I chop it up no one ever knows spinach is in there ;)

  3. Yum yum! I might do this this week and see what the hubby thinks about it!

  4. Those look super delicious! I'll definitely be making them this week :)
