    MSZANZ's Note:

    Years ago my grandmother ordered me these recipe cards in the mail that you file in a box that the company provides. I didn't much care for the recipes so we ended the subscription. There was one gem in the bunch, though. It remains a family favorite! (I don't remember the name of the company) I have adjusted the cooking times several times based on different ovens (military, moving, rental houses, unreliable ovens!) so you may need to watch it and cook it more or less based on your oven. It is not a very traditional recipe but it is quick with little mess! You can also make it ahead and just cook it when you are ready.

      Followed recipe with the exception of adding 8oz. Ricotta to loosen up the filling and it was superb! My family loved it and it now goes on my go to dinner list... The cream cheese makes this recipe VERY special!!

      This was delicious. I made it as directed and the whole family loved it. The preparation is fairly easily and doesn't take very long. I think it took me 30 minutes to get it in the oven, and that's even with distractions from a 1 and a 3 year old. I will definitely make this again, but I think I will add ricotta in the mix too because I thought the shells could have been a little fuller.
