I have been waiting a while to make these spinach filled pasta shells, but it sadly didn't turn out the way I envisioned. The kids and wife loved it (thankfully), but I think mixing everything in the food processor made the cheese filling too runny and definitely not the consistency I was hoping for. Next time, I will either blanch the spinach and cut them into small pieces before adding them to the cheese mixture, or just add some breadcrumbs to thicken the filling. Well, as long as the family enjoyed it then I have nothing to complain about.
