Consider some substitutions to make this recipe even easier – and more delicious!

  • In place of part skim ricotta, try subbing fresh ricotta from your local farmer’s market
  • No fresh spinach in your refrigerator? You can substitute with chopped frozen spinach (cooked and dried.)
  • Try mixing in ¼ of the tomato mixture into the squash before filling your shell. The added flavor is fantastic!
