I am thinking of making a vegetarian stuffed jumbo shells dinner. I was thinking of stuffing the shells with pureed butternut squash. Whenever I have stuffed shells (as with spinach) I always added ricotta to the mixture. Any thoughts on whether I should add ricotta to the butternut squash pureee? Would just butternut squash (jazzed up with nutmeg,maybe), be a good choice of filling for the shells?
Any thoughts on how to marry butternut squash and jumbo shells would be appreciated.
