There were neighborhoods with a predominantly Italian population and those just a jiggle northeast with a larger Irish population. I lived in a neighborhood with many Italian families and can say, I loved it. Most of my friends were from big Italian families and I was absorbed with the lot, always being fed and included in whatever was going on. So maybe I'm Italian by osmosis ...and it shows in my meal planning at times.
I. Love. Pasta.
These stuffed shells weren't that difficult to prepare but took some time. Worth every minute of it, I attest to that here. I used the jumbo shells so three was a decent serving.
Here is a recipe for 24 shells in case a large batch is needed. For just the two of us I cut it down by half and it still gave us leftovers. Cheesy and spinach laden - perfect.
