    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    We were treated to this at a friends house for dinner. Very good! Recipe can easily made ahead and be halved. What I especially like about it it, it is NOT too cheesy! Easy to make and easy to serve. I prefer making the shells for that reason.

      Ok, I made this last night. It was very tasty, but I made an alfredo sauce, instead of a marinara sauce. I really should have stuck with the marinara, because it was just too rich with the alfredo. I'll try it again, exactly as written. Again, thanks for sharing. Other than my alfredo sauce accompaniment, it was delicious! My mistake.

      My husband and I enjoyed this, although the Kiddo wasn't crazy about it. I used shells to make mine. It was easy to put together, and had a really nice flavor. But of course - if I make it again, I'll make it when the kid's not home for dinner. Thanks!
