      These were a big hit in my family. Although they took me awhile to make, they were so much quicker than the traditional method and I thought they tasted as good as my grandmother's did.

      I know, it seems I give 5 stars to everything--but I only try stuff that I will most likely enjoy. This recipe was great. I had never worked with shells before, so this was a bit time-consuming, but after the first few shells, it got easier. Since there was more than enough to cover the bottom of the pan, so I ate the extras without baking them. I highly recommend this--they taste good just like that! The only change I made was that I didn't peel the potatoes, since I like the texture and the added nutrition. The only change I would make in the future would be to actually add more margarine to the top, since it dries out a bit. But, this is true comfort food, and the combination of flavors is mild enough to please the whole family. I will definitely make this again. Thanks, NurseDi for another winner!
