Cook pasta according to instructions. Heat olive oil in a heavy pan and fry the chopped spinach with crushed garlic and dried chili until well wilted. Once wilted, remove from heat and place in a mixing bowl to cool. Once cool, add ricotta and freshly ground nutmeg to taste then season with salt and pepper. Mix well until the spinach and ricotta is well combined. Lightly oil a square baking dish. Then, taking the lumaconi pasta one by one, fill with roughly a tablespoon of the filling and place in the dish in neat rows. Repeat with all pasta shells and when finished finely slice the remaining basil leaves and add to the top of the shells with the parmesan. Bake at 350 degree Fahrenheit until the cheese is golden and the filling heated through. Serve and enjoy. The dish can be served with tomato sauce.
