  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray. Cook and drain pasta shells as directed on box.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic, 1 cup of the cheese, the salt and pepper.
  • 3
    Fill each pasta shell with a tablespoon of the spinach mixture; place in baking dish filling side up. Top filled shells with Alfredo sauce, and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  • 4
    Cover; bake 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • For a crispy topping, mix 1 cup Progresso™ Italian panko crispy bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon olive oil, mixing well. Sprinkle on top of pasta shells before baking. Bake as directed above until cheese is melted and bread crumbs are light golden brown.
  • Most grocery stores sell a deli, refrigerated version of the spinach artichoke dip, which can be a nice shortcut for the filling.
