I thought this was ok. We changed the hamburger to chicken. I think it's need more sauce than the recipe calls for. Also, not quite sure why they want you to use pasta shells when you aren't filling them. You could really use any pasta and it would probably be better since it seemed weird that the shells weren't filled. I would make again with a little tweaking.
