Basic meat filled stuffed shells recipe taken from the side of the box of shells and adapted for OAMC. A bit intense (and messy) on the preparation side but a it's a real time saver to make a double batch and be able to pull them from the freezer whenever you want them.

This is a great OAMC keeper. I didn't tell anyone that the shells had turkey in them and they didn't know the difference. Everyone like them very much. Thanks for an excellent recipe.
family loved it!! I've made a similar recipe before but this one was much better and very filling. My family had no idea that it had turkey in it and I didn't tell them. :) I put extra cheese on top. YUM!
