There are so many great ways to stuff pasta shells. They are so versatile. There are Mexican style stuffed shells, or Triple Cheese Barbecue Pork Stuffed Shells, or broccoli Alfredo chicken stuffed shells but I think my favorite is these Triple Cheese Sausage Spinach Stuffed Shells. These little beauties are such a treat.
These can be made up ahead of time covered and just waiting till about 30 minutes before chow time to be popped in the oven. this makes it a perfect dish for weeknights or company. I have even prepared these for parties! So yummy!! This dish is not overly loaded with carbs. With a salad or soup it would only take three of these shells to fill you up!! The shells are plump full of delicious high protein foods like sausage and cheese.
These Triple Cheese Sausage Spinach Stuffed Shells can be prepared in no time at all and your family will be singing accolades! Give them a whirl and let me know if you love them as much as we do!!
