This is one of Jack’s favorite meals. These stuffed shells are so yummy. They freeze wonderfully if you make up a big batch place shells in a freezer bag and pull out as you need them. I add spinach and carrots to get more veggies in and the lean turkey keeps it pretty healthy!
1 package frozen, chopped spinach, thawed & drained well
1 pound ground turkey
1 (8-ounce) package lo-fat cream cheese, softened
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 to 2 carrots, chopped fine
Salt and pepper
1 (1-pound) package jumbo pasta shells
1 jar your fav Pasta Sauce
Cook shells, drain & cool. Brown the turkey,drain. Place turkey in large bowl with the spinach. Stir in the cream cheese until blended. Sauté onions and carrots until tender. Transfer to the bowl with the other ingredients and stir to combine. Add grated cheese, salt, and pepper, to taste, and combine. Let mixture cool and then add egg. Preheat the oven to 350. Place shells in a large baking pan and cover with tomato sauce. Cover with foil and bake for approximately 1 hour. Serve. Shells freeze beautifully. Add sauce when ready to cook.
