1 lb hamburger

2 cans diced tomatoes

1 can diced tomato with jalapeno or chilies

1 teaspoon garlic

½ teaspoon parsley flakes

1 pinch cayenne pepper

1 box jumbo shells

16 oz pepper jack cheese

½ can spinach

Salt & pepper to taste



Start a pan to boil water for pasta. Cook pasta according to directions on package

Brown ground beef in large skillet

Add 1 can tomatoes and seasoning to beef

Add 1 can tomato minus the liquid to the mixture

Let beef mixture cook until noodles are ready to stuff

Once pasta is cooled enough to hold fill each shell with the meat mixture and place in oven-safe pan

Cover shells with can of tomatoes with chilies or jalapenos.

Add salt and pepper

Sprinkle cheese over stuffed shells

Lastly add spinach


You could easily add spinach and cheese to the mixture, but we are all picky so we like to be able to easy remove the items we don’t want like the globs of spinach on top.
