    MommyJan2's Note:

    No Ricotta! No Meat! No Spinach! These are delicious cheese stuffed shells. I can't remember where I found this recipe, but it is used at Cornerstone Memories (, a scrapbook retreat house. The guests love it and are always asking for the recipe. You can easily make the shells with the mixture inside and then freeze them. Just thaw and follow from step #4. I use Prego, but any type sauce will do fine. Delicious!

      These were good, but rather watery, no idea why. I drained the shells thoroughly before stuffing them, and I followed the directions exactly. Perhaps it was the brand of sauce. In any case, thanks for posting! I haven't made these in years!
