It’s cold up in New York. Another deep freeze is impending! These boats or bowls or whatever you want to call them, are so easy to put together. Bonus: You don’t have to wash a bunch of dirty dishes after you are done because your bowl is edible.
These rich and cheesy spinach and ricotta-stuffed shells are the ultimate Italian comfort food. Substitute various cheeses, such as Asiago or feta, in place of Parmesan and other dried herbs, such as thyme, basil, or dill, in place of oregano.
