Crab + Shrimp Stuffed Shells

Seafood and pasta are two types of food that I absolutely love . When they are served in the same dish , it is a party for your mouth ! I have a recipe in my latest ebook “The Pasta Level Up” for a chicken Parmesan stuffed shells recipe , so I decided to do a seafood variation of stuffed shells and this idea was born. This dish combines shrimp, lump crab , spinach , and 3 cheeses to create the perfect dinner for yourself or loved ones. Serve this dish with a side salad and rolls for the perfect pasta night at home. As usual, please let me know how it comes out for you and enjoy !
