3/4 (12-ounce) package jumbo pasta shells (about 32 shells)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 (10-ounce) package trimmed fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated fresh Romano cheese
1/3 cup chopped fresh or 2 tablespoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 6 turkey-pepperoni slices (such as Hormel), chopped
1 (15-ounce) carton fat-free ricotta cheese
1 (15-ounce) carton whole-milk ricotta cheese
1 (26-ounce) jar fire-roasted tomato and garlic pasta sauce (such as Classico)
1 (8-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
Basil sprigs (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°.

Cook pasta shells according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Rinse under cold water; drain and set aside.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Add spinach, and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes.

Combine spinach mixture, Romano cheese, and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well. Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon spinach-cheese mixture into each cooked shell.
