Stuffed shells with smokey marinara
Stuffed shells with smokey marinara sauce
This was a keeper. Yummy, I love Italian food, I could eat it every night. I could eat the sauce( gravy) alone with a spoon. I decided we need to eat 1 meatless entree a week and this fits the bill perfectly. I made this a few months ago with Christine in our big oamc extravaganza. We loved them then, we love them now. The recipe makes a lot so I decided to preportion out and freeze the rest. I now have 2 more containers with 2 servings( weight watchers 10 points per 4 shell serving) each. I couldnt find the frozen chopped spinach in our very full freezer, so I left it out. I made the sauce this morning with 1 large can of san marzano tomatoes and 2 cans of muir glen fire roasted tomatoes, a chopped leek and celery and plenty of garlic. I threw in some fresh oregano and some dried italian herbs. The filling is low-fat ricotta and lowfat cottage cheese, chives, parsley, asiago( I used reggiano). The shells are topped with mozzarella.
We topped off our meal with 1 giant oatmeal cookie from small batch baking. I loved making one cookie, but I had to add a bit more flour( and i used whole wheat) than the recipe called for. I also added a tablespoon of choc. chips and pb chips. Yummy.
