    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    These are some of the weirdest little things I've ever created, but they sure are good! These are a great side to take to a potluck or BBQ. They are also a perfect main course next to some potatoe salad and baked beans.

      This was just ok. I wasn't crazy about the amount of ricotta in the time I'll either reduce that or mix something else in with it (cottage cheese or mozzarella, perhaps) to change the flavor. I used ground beef and cheddar cheese - I think I'll use more cheddar next time! I had a lot of leftover shells that wouldn't fit in the dish and that I didn't have enough meat left to fill anyway. All in all those, this was pretty tasty and certainly not a bad dinner.

      These were a hit here, too. I used chicken and replaced ricotta with cottage cheese. I also added 10 oz spinach to the cottage cheese mixture. I made them ahead, froze in two batches, and reheated when we needed them. This worked great. Thanks!
