Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was okay, but Mr. Food's recipe for Stuffed Shells has a lot more flavor.

Amazing!! I didn't have mushrooms, so I skipped them, other than that, followed the recipe exactly. I used home made ricotta. This smelled so amazing while baking! The kids cleaned their plates, that's rare. I will make this over and over again.

Added ground beef and cooked the whole 16oz box of noodles. Made lots of leftovers! Everyone complained that they were to fulll!

This totally looks like the kind of dish I could make during the work week. Looks super easy--can't wait to try it.

I'm heading to the store now to get the ingredients for this to make for dinner tonight. I'm going to add mushrooms, onions and ground beef. We shall see....

where is the save recipe buttong?

sounds good

For new cooks, boil the macaroni the least-to-middle amount of time mentioned on the box, not the maximum. Then bake. Then it will not "mush" when reheating gently, either, if you expect leftovers. (I use homemade spaghetti sauce when serving from the TOP of the stove, but find I can often substitute with jarred sauce when BAKING...and noone knows.)

i can not wait to make and taste this dish. yum
