20. Stuffed Shells with Spinach

1-Stuffed Shells


Remember how long your mother used to stand in the kitchen preparing stuffed shells? There was the long, tedious process of cooking the pasta, then the 15-20 minute wait for those shells to cool before you could even get to stuffing them with a ricotta mixture and organizing all of the ingredients into a Pyrex dish. In today’s world, who has time for that? Forget about this prep step altogether because your crockpot has got you covered!

This crockpot twist on a flavorful classic requires low maintenance, but still provides the same great taste you know and love. The best part is, you can prepare this meal around your schedule. If you know you have a busy day, pop the contents into the crockpot in the morning and set the cooker on low. Then simply arrive home a few hours later and dig in! If you come home on your lunch break, work from a home office, or have the day off, you can start this recipe later in the day. Set your cooker on high and in 3-4 hours you’ll be dishing out this ooey-gooey goodness for everyone to enjoy!
