Awesome! An unique side dish that was impressive and delicious. I used mozzarella cheese, and the filling was enough for 16 jumbo shells. Thank you.

This was absolutely wonderful!! I quadrupled the recipe to make it as a main dish. My boyfriend had four helpings and loved every bite. I added tuna to the mix-ins and the flavor was amazing! I also melted more butter and brushed it on the shells right before serving. Thank you so much for the recipe! I will be making it again soon.

Good idea! I scaled the recipe down to 6 pasta shells, used frozen peas, corn and fresh carrots, which I cooked a few minutes. The flavors were nice. I thought the shells dried out a little while baking, and maybe baked with a little tomato sauce or even water would help that. Thanks!
