This past week I have been starting some cleaning projects. One of my favorite projects is to go through the pantry and try to use a lot of the foods I have on hand that I may not have fixed during the summer months. There was a half package of lasagna noodles as well as about 9 large pasta shells.  I made a small pan of lasagna and then made Spicy Sausage-Spinach Stuffed Shells.  We gave the lasagna to my son, and we enjoyed the shells.
