2. In a large bowl, mix ricotta, spinach, egg and cheese. Mix well. Then mix in the spices.
3. Preheat oven to 350 and spread 1/4 sauce over the bottom of the baking pan.
4. Fill the cook shells with about a spoonful of the mix.
5. Line the stuffed shells in the pan.
6. Pour the remaining sauce over the shells.
7. Cook in oven uncovered for 25-30 minutes.

For the garlic bread:
1. Slice it in half, then sliced the two pieces longwise, so you end up with 4 large pieces. (I used a long french loaf)
2. Mix 3 cloves of minced garlic with melted butter.
3. Slather the butter on the bread.
4. Bake for 10 minutes.
5. Optional: spices added on top (chives, red pepper, lemon zest, etc.)
