Spinach and mushrooms are the go to vegetables added to this wonderful spinach and mushroom stuffed shell recipe of Angie’s. Spinach is a great dark green edible flowering plant that is mega high in iron and goes well in salads, pastas, dips and any place you might see fit to add it to. Spinach is thought to have originated in ancient Persia (modern Iran and neighboring countries). It is not known who did, or when, but spinach was introduced to India and the plant was subsequently introduced to ancient China where it was known as "Persian vegetable". The earliest available record of the spinach plant was transcribed in Chinese, stating it was introduced into China via Nepal (probably in 647 AD). Spinach was supposedly the favorite vegetable of Catherine De Medici an Italian Noblewoman who later became the Queen of France from 1547 to 1559. The dishes served on a bed of spinach are commonly known as "Florentine", reflecting Catherine's birthplace in Firenze (Florence). During the First World War, wine fortified with cooked spinach juice was given to French warriors weakened by hemorrhages sustained in battle.
