To make Emiril's Spinach And Blue Crab Stuffed Shells, grease a 2-quart casserole dish, sprinkle it with 2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs and set aside. In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese, 1 cup ricotta cheese, 1 cup cooked and chopped spinach, 1/2 pound lump crab meat, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup chopped prosciutto, 2 large egg yolks, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh parsley, 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh basil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Stir until well combined.
Cook 16 to 20 jumbo pasta shells until al dente and stuff them with the cheese mixture one at a time. Arrange the shells in even rows in the prepared casserole dish. Pour one 25-ounce jar of Emeril's vodka sauce over the shells, and sprinkle the tops evenly with 3 tablespoons of dry fine breadcrumbs. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until hot and bubbly, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes, before serving hot. Emeril's vodka sauces also taste great over penne, rigatoni or ziti pasta.Learn more about Cooking
