Cheesy Shells

Recipe by Virginia1

This is a meal from my mother-in-law. She learned it when she was a bride, and it has become a real comfort food for her kids and now her grandchildren as well. It is fast, cheap, and the kids all love it.

This is one of the first meals I made as a teenager. Loved it then and still love it today.I use cheez wiz in mine. Great recipe for those lazy nights when I don't feel like cooking.
