    happynana's Note:

    I took a recipe of mine and revamped it. I don't remember where the original recipe came from because it is so old that is yellowed:) My DH, DD and grandsons just loved it. When I use my glass 13 x 9 x 2 pan, all the shells with not fit and I have a few left. I stuff each shell one at a time and put them in the pan as I go.

      This was exceptional I made as stated except I could not buy jumbo shells, so I made it in cannelloni instead. I also made it with Kangaroo Bolognese Sauce instead of plain spaghetti sauce. The flavour of the cheeses in this was awesome, we all raved about it, I did make one more sub and that was I used gruyere cheese instead of monterey jack as I can not buy that in Switzerland. You have nailed another superb recipe happynana and I am sure it would be just as good made with regular spaghetti sauce as the combination of the cheeses and herbs is wonderful. A definite keeper and judging by the oh wow's tonight, it will become a regular addition to our table.
