Now this is a dish that screams YUMMY!!!! This entire pan of stuffed shells was gone within minutes. Serve it up as a Meatless Monday dish along with a side salad. This is comfort food to the max. The kale is an added nutritional benefit and offsets the cheese calories.
This dish made approximately 18 stuffed jumbo shells. Serving size is 3-4 shells. Three shells with a salad was plenty for me.and in the neighborhood of 460 calories. If you substitute marina sauce for the tomato basil pasta sauce, you can deduct 57 calories. The filling is so tasty, I doubt you will even notice the difference.
Kale, spinach and flat leaf parsley are the “green” binders for the shell filling. Low-fat ricotta chees and an egg seal the deal.
It take some time to fill the shells, but watching an episode of NCIS (with my man, Mark Harmon) certainly made the time fly.
