Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Shells

 It’s time once again for our Freaky Friday blog hop! This winter edition will prove to be a good one.  There has been a lot of chatter between the bloggers in this round, talking about how awesome their recipes are.  I can’t wait to see what everyone made!

Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Shells

I was super duper excited to get my assignment this round.  Angela, from LeMoine Family Kitchen is just a doll.  She is one of the nicest bloggers I have ever had the pleasure of “meeting.”  When I say meeting — I mean online.  We have a close-knit group of food bloggers, and I feel like I have known many of them for a long, long time!

What is Freaky Friday?  It’s a group I put together two years ago with some of my favorite blogger buddies.  We are secretly assigned one another’s blogs, and cook/bake from there.  We all reveal on one day at the same time.  That day is TODAY!

When I was assigned Angela’s blog, I knew already that I would be making something Italian.  Angela’s Italian roots run deep.  Her grandparents came here straight from Italy.   She grew up having big family meals filled with lots of good food! She married her high school sweetheart., and together they have two boys.  Angela, like me, is a stay-at-home-Mom, and family is very important to her.

When I went to her blog to pick out my recipe, I went straight to  the “Pasta Recipes” tab.  I mean, why WOULDN’T I?  I narrowed it down to four recipes, This Homemade Pappardelle Bolognese, this Linguine in a Creamy Artichoke Sauce, her Lemon Asparagus Risotto and what I chose, her Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Shells.

Don’t think Angela only shares Italian recipes, though! She has a giant recipe box FILLED with deliciousness!  — little secret?  If you love scones, she is your girl!
