  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta shells in boiling water until cooked through but firm to the bite, 12 minutes. Drain.
  3. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Melt Monterey Jack cheese in a saucepan over medium-low heat, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir spinach, tomato, onion, and bell pepper into the cheese; cook until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  5. Spoon sausage, Monterey Jack cheese mixture, and ricotta cheese into the pasta shells; arrange in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour tomato sauce over the stuffed shells.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until the sauce is hot and bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!
