Easy Cheesy Stuffed Shells are a delicious main deal for the whole family. This recipe combines ricotta, mozzarella, and paresean cheeses, and spinach stuffed into the shells. A spicy layer of Hot or Mild Italian sausage completes the meal. A family favorite Italian dinner!

I am not a huge fan of garlic, but I find that this recipe really absorbs the garlic and mellows the flavor while baking. I usually put enough garlic powder until I think “wow, I put too much in”. That is actually the perfect amount.
