Giada's Turkey and Artichoke Stuffed Shells with Arrabiatta Sauce

I watched Giada make this recipe on her show a couple of months ago and I knew that I had to try it at some point. The recipe is called Turkey and Artichoke Stuffed Shells with Arrabiatta Sauce and you can get the recipe here. They were really good! They are basically shells stuffed with a mixture of ground turkey, artichokes, ricotta, parmesean cheese, etc. They are then topped with a sauce called Arrabiatta Sauce which is basically just jarred marinara sauce with some panchetta and lots of red pepper flakes. The next time that I make this I will definitely use a lot less red pepper flakes. This recipe calls for 2 teaspoons and it lit my world on fire! ha

This recipe calls for frozen artichokes and I could not find frozen artichokes here for some reason so I just used canned that I drained and rinsed. I don't think that they turned out any different because of this.

I am also not sure if I will use panchetta next time either. It was really expensive here where I was able to find it. I tend to like to make recipes with cheaper ingredients.

I have had good experiences with Giada's recipes so far. I will definitely try more as I see things that I like.

Until next time...
