Slightly Spicy Stuffed Shells

1 lb ground beef
1 oz. Moroccan Spice Blend
1 box large pasta shells
5 oz. fresh baby spinach
16 oz. shredded Parmesan cheese
1 jar of tomato sauce
1/3 cup Herbs de Provence
8 oz. ricotta cheese
1 Tbsp. Garlic – Minced
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
PREHEAT oven to 325°F.

BROWN the ground beef, retaining a small amount of pan drippings. Add Moroccan Spice Blend. Mix thoroughly.

WHILE browning the meat, cook the pasta to al dente. Drain, rinse, and set aside.

SAUTÉ the spinach over medium heat in the drippings, covering with the meat mixture.

SLOWLY incorporate the Parmesan cheese into the meat mixture in thirds, allowing the cheese time to melt into the mixture.

COVER the bottom of a 9"x13" baking pan with a thin layer of sauce. Sprinkle the sauce with half of the Herbs de Provence.

INSIDE each shell, smear a spoonful of ricotta cheese, sprinkle with Garlic - Minced, and fill with meat mixture. Place finished shells open-side-down in the baking pan.

TOP the completed shells with the rest of the sauce, sprinkling the rest of the Herbs de Provence and the mozzarella cheese on top.

BAKE for 25 mins. Enjoy with a fresh salad and bread!
