When it comes to cooking for my family I love being able to create a homemade and delicious meal but lets be honest, somedays are so busy and its not always easy! Despite the crazy days, I always try to make each meal special in its own way. I grew up in a very Italian home and so many fond memories that I have are those that were made in the kitchen with my mom and grandparents. I am so excited because my 7 year old LOVES getting in the kitchen with me and helping cook. These Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Shells are so easy to make that my son did a lot of the work.
These are as simple as boiling the pasta, mixing some tasty Italian inspired ingredients in a bowl, stuffing said pasta then topping it off with the NEW RAGÚ® Homestyle Thick & Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce. This sauce us such a great option to make dinner easy and delicious. There are NO artificial colors, artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup…. just real ingredients made into a thick, hearty, stick to your pasta kind of homestyle sauce! You all are going to love this classic Italian dish- the filling is truly incredible with 7 different cheese and the classic combo of spinach & artichoke.
- 1 lb jumbo pasta shells
- 1 jar RAGÚ® Homestyle Thick & Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce
- 1 cup rough chopped marinated artichoke hearts
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 6 oz bag baby spinach
- 2 eggs
- 2½ cups ricotta cheese
- 1½ cups 6 blend Italian shredded cheese
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- Cook the pasta shells according to the package but a couple minutes shy of al dente- they will cook further in the oven. You just need them pliable to easily stuff. Drain and set aside.
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- In a saute pan, over medium heat, add the olive oil and spinach. Cook until wilted then squeeze out some the liquid. Set spinach aside.
- In a large bowl stir together the cooked spinach, eggs, ricotta cheese, artichoke hearts, shredded cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
- Prepare a large baking pan by coating the bottom with RAGÚ® Homestyle Thick & Hearty Roasted Garlic Sauce.
- Stuff each pasta shell with some of the filling and place into the baking sheet. Pour the top of the shells with the remaining sauce.
- Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. You can garnish with grated parmigiano cheese and parsley.

Stuffed shells are my oldest daughters fave pasta dish. They’re so easy but seem so complicated (like a lot of traditional Italian dishes). These look delicious and I’ve never added artichokes before. I’m totally trying that next time. I’ve used the mushroom ragu but next on my list is either the cheese or the garlic!
You are very right! The classics do not need to take hours to prepare. The spinach and artichoke in these really are fantastic! Enjoy!
Great flavor combination. Artichokes add so much flavor to it.
Thank you! The filling really is fantastic!
I love making stuffed shells so I will have to try these made with artichoke and spinach! They look healthy and tasty! I would try it with the Roasted garlic sauce.
Oh they are so so good! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did
Angela, I really like the addition of the artichoke to the spinach. Glad you had your son help – stuffing shells, while great, takes time. The sauce is great to help simplify the recipe too.
Thank you Peter! I loved being able to throw this together during the week with little effort but still have incredible flavors happening!
YUM! Stuffed shells are one of my favorite at-home dishes, but I hardly ever make them because they take a lot of time and effort. I love the addition of the RAGU sauce to making this a quicker recipe. We’re definitely going to have to try this in the near future! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for stopping by! These turned out so so delicious and so easy thanks to Ragu Homestyld sauces!
Can’t wait to try the Thick and Hearty Four Cheese sauce!

Yummy! I don’t think I’ve thought of artichokes in stuffed shells before! I would love this!
Oh it is so so good! A must try!
My family loves stuffed shells. I usually put spinach in ours, but artichoke sounds like something we must try next! I’ve tried the Ragú with meat sauce already, but we will be trying the Ragu with Mushrooms next. Yum!
Oh the artichokes are a great addition! Hope you give it a try!

This looks so good! I love stuffed shells but have not done it with spinach and artichoke before, it sounds amazing!
Oh it’s a great combo! Def give it a try!
Ragu is my favorite sauce! I haven’t seen the homestyle in our stores yet. I’ll have to keep an eye out! Great recipe, BTW.
Oh definitely keep an eye out! I found it at Target but Walmart will also be carrying them soon
These look AMAZING. I love spinach artichoke anything – especially when it’s stuffed inside a pasta shell!
Oh I’m right there with you!
I actually prefer stuffed shells over lasagna. Never thought to add the artichokes – good thinking!
It’s really tasty! Enjoy it
This looks really healthy! Just pinned this.
The four cheese pasta sauce, looks great!
It sounds so tasty right?!
I love Ragu sauce. I usually get the chunky variety. I will have to try this one. Your stuffed shells look amazing. I’ve never made them before. Are they hard to keep together or is there a good trick?
PS I think I will try the 4 cheese because you know, it’s cheese.
High five for cheese!!!
Oh you’ll love these homestyle sauces then, nice & thick! They are so easy to make! You want to make sure to not over cook the pasta while boiling. You want it just pliable enough so you can stuff them. Keep them packed closely together in the baking dish too.
This looks and sounds so delicious! What a great comfort food recipe! Thanks for sharing!
Oh my pleasure! Hope you it too!
