Sausage Stuffed Shells
By Valerie Reeves Marin8
For years, I tried to find a recipe for stuffed shells and/or manicotti that included meat in the filling. So, after lots of experimenting, I came up with my own! My husband and kids beg me to make this - they say it is the best pasta dish ever!
This a a terrific variation of a stuffed shells recipe. The silky cream cheese is the perfect off-set for the slightly spicy sausage. A real winner!

I had these last week and they were the best pasta shells I've ever had...I'm not a big fan of ravioli or stuffed pasta, but this dish with the sausage really tickled my tastebuds...excellent dish. Thanks for sharing it!

sounds wonderful, but why the cream cheese?

Yes Brenda, the spinach does taste great with the sausage - almost like a pizza! And the cream cheese adds a little "tang" and creaminess to the mixture. I put cream cheese in my lasagna, also. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
