In the Kitchen: Stuffed Shells


I shared a glimpse of some stuffed shells I made two weekends ago - ladies they were delish and simple!! That weekend I was craving Italian in a bad way!!! It was damp and rainy all day Sunday - so a home cooked meal fit the bill nicely! I wasn't wanting to cook my normal spaghetti with meat sauce....I wanted something easy but different. Enter Stuffed Shells. I pulled out my trusty cooking helper, Google and found the easy recipe above. 

So easy and quite simple to make! My only regret: I wish I would have looked at the serving size - I made portions for six, but it turned out ok, because I froze a tray for later - or you could make a tray for a sick friend, or your Mom or neighbor! For me, the later happened to be this past Monday night - and this second go around tasted just like the day I made them, they kept wonderfully!

The cast of characters: 
[I threw in some spinach as well, cuz why not - I had it and I enjoy it in my pastas]

[Prepped and ready for the oven]

VIOLA!!!!!!!!!!

These were a hit in my house!!! They were surprisingly light and I had a pre-made garlic bread in the freezer, a simple and easy solution to my italian-always-better-with-bread problem! I hope you try and enjoy!!!
