Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Shells

I saw a recipe online for Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Shells and decided we could make that ourselves. I’ve only ever made stuffed shells one way, with marinara, spinach, and cheese. I never even thought about there being multiple ways to stuff pasta shells. And it came out really good!

Start by boiling the shells as directed. For this, I have learned the hard way that the store-brand shells tend to break a lot easier than the name brand. You want to boil the shells so that they are soft, but not overcooked. Since they are still going to bake, it’s ok to be slightly undercooked. If they are too soft, they’ll break as you try to stuff them.

Add in the cream cheese, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses. Stir it continuously to melt the cheese, making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom and burn.

Move the artichoke mixture into a bowl and let it cool for just a few minutes so it isn’t too hot to work with.

I like to set my work area up with the shells to the right, the artichoke mixture in the middle, and the glass dish to the left. Grab a shell, and put a scoop of filling inside it, then lay it in the pan. Continue the same with all the shells.

Top the shells with more mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Then bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is all melted.

  1. I like this recipe because I never thought to stuff shells with anything other then the traditional flavors. I do like spinach and could make up half with artichokes. I haven’t made sruffed shells in a long time.

  2. This sounds absolutely delicious! I need to make this with my little boy because spinach is his absolutely fave thing to eat!!

  3. It’s funny, it was National Artichoke Day this last week and I was looking for a great recipe. I wish I had seen this before. This looks delicious and creamy. I’ll have to try it out.
