Ravioli Stuffed Shells Recipe


  • 2 lbs. meatloaf mix (pork, beef and veal combined)
  • 1 (10 oz.) box frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 1/2 t. pepper
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1/2 t. dried basil
  • 1/2 t. dried oregano
  • 2 c. ricotta cheese (part-skim or regular)
  • 1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
  • 5 c. marinara sauce


  1. Heat a large pot of water to boil then add in 1 box of jumbo shells.
  2. Cook according to package directions, then drain.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, then add the meat to brown, breaking up as you go.
  4. Once the meat is browned, stir in the spinach, salt, pepper, dried oregano, garlic powder and dried basil.
  5. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  6. In a large bowl, add the ricotta and parmesan cheese and stir to combine.
  7. Pour in the cooled sausage mixture and stir together with the cheese to make the filling.
  8. Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
  9. Get 2 9x13" baking dishes and spoon about a cup of the marinara sauce on the bottom of each to coat.
  10. Start filling the shells with the sausage mixture and placing on top of the sauce.
  11. Once the shells are filled, pour more sauce over the top to almost cover and then top with additional parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
  12. Bake for 20 minutes covered with aluminum foil, then remove the foil and bake another 20.


  • You'll need 2 baking dishes for this recipe, a whole box is about 32 shells and you'll have enough filling for almost all of them.
  • You can make the shells completely and then bake when your ready. Just add a few more minutes to the cook time since they'll be cold from the refrigerator.
