Stuffed Shells

from Real Simple

20 jumbo pasta shells
1 24 oz jar marinara sauce
1 small container ricotta cheese
2 cups chopped baby spinach
broccoli floretts chopped and steamed
asparagus chopped and steamed (you can add any veggies to this!)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup grated mozzarella (4 oz)
I have made these with the above ingredients so they are vegetarian, but they are also good if you add browned ground turkey or beef.

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and run under cold water until cool.
2. Spread marinara in the bottom of a baking dish.
3. In a bowl combine cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and veggies. Mix together, spoon into shells and sprinkle top of shells with mozzarella.
4. Bake about 10-12 minutes until shells are heated through. Increase heat to broil, broil shells until cheese begins to brown, 2-5 minutes.
