Shells a' Lasagna

No recipe today. Just an impromptu idea about lasagna in a different form.  Giant pasta shells. Isn't this fun?  It was tasty, easy, and good enough for a company dinner.  I put it together using my favorite lasagna techniques which include mixing pesto, an egg, salt, pepper, and spinach into ricotta cheese for the stuffing.  I also parboiled the shells so they were far easier to stuff than uncooked or overcooked shells.  Put a little sauce (I cheated with the jarred stuff) on the bottom of the pan, layer the noodles, cover with sauce and then top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or so and serve.  A salad, some bread, and a light dessert and you have dinner with leftovers if you're lucky.
