Stuffed Shells Florentine

 Stuffed Shells Florentine
For a little fancier New Year's gathering, I like to serve these pasta shells stuffed with cheese and spinach and topped with spaghetti sauce. Complete the meal with breadsticks and a tossed salad. Italian food is loved by all, and the aroma is warm and inviting. —Trisha Kuster, Macomb, Illinois
