I would also like to add that I hate blogger and the fact that for no reason whatsoever it is doublespacing my ingredient list. I apologize in advance for the awfulness. I hope it doesn't keep you from trying a yummy recipe. If any of you Blogger users out there know what I've done wrong, please leave me a comment and let me know.

Source: Taste of Home December & January 2009
Ingredients:1 pkg (16 oz.) medium pasta shells
3 large onions
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 9 oz. package fresh spinach, torn
1 Tbsp minced fresh rosemary or 1 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper to taste
3-1/2 cups skim milk
1 cup park-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup (4 oz.) crumbled goat cheese
2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350°
Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, saute onions in oil for 15-20 minutes or unitl golden brown. Add spinach and rosemary, cook for a few minutes until spinach is wilted.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and pepper until smooth and cook for a few minutes. Gradually add milk, stirring to prevent lumps from forming. Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in cheeses until blended.
Drain pasta, place in a large bowl. Add the ham, onion mixture and sauce and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes until bubbly.
