      This was great, shells and cheese and chicken are my DHs 2 favorites so I cannot go wrong with this recipe! Only change I made was to use frozen peas and carrots since that is what was in the freezer. Made for 123Hits.

      This is getting 5 stars because my hubby was as pleased as a kid in a candy store and kept taking "just one more" scoop. Of course it's simple to make and it's also pure comfort food. I can't see why the entire family clean up their plates. DH is already asking for it again soon!
