Chicken Stuffed Shells

I’m pretty sure everyone loves Italian food and craves pasta dishes. It definitely makes good comfort food on a cold day. So, I decided to make Chicken Stuffed Shells by stuffing the shells with ground chicken instead of a beef which makes it a little healthier for you. Everyone is allowed to indulge on occasion! 🙂
Ingredients
Olive Oil
Onion
Parsley
Mushrooms
Parmesan (block only to achieve nutty flavor)
Mozzarella
1 Clove of Garlic
1 Package of Frozen Spinach
1 Egg
Cream Cheese
Italian Bread Crumbs
Boil shells until al dente. In food processor mix 2 tbsp of olive oil, 1/4 of an onion, handful of parsley, handful of mushrooms, 1/4 cup of parmesan, 1/4 tsp of salt & pepper and grind up really well. In a large bowl put cooked ground chicken, 1 egg, whole package of spinach thawed and drained of all liquid, 1/3 cup of bread crumbs, mixture from food processor, and salt & pepper to taste. Don’t over salt & pepper b/c you will add marinara. Stuff the shells with ground chicken mixture and place in a 9 x 13 baking dish, drizzle with marinara and sprinkle with mozzarella. Cover with foil and place in 350 degrees oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
