Bring to boil, stirring constantly; cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese and the Parmesan cheese; cook and stir until melted.
  • Pour ground beef mixture and cheese mixture over shells and spinach in the large pot; mix well. Pour into a greased 2-1/2 qt casserole. Top with the remaining shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until it is bubbling and the cheese on top is melted.
