My mom used to make a shells & cheese dish with velveeta cheese when I was a child which used bacon and canned tomatoes. This is my short-cut which tastes 99% like the one mom used to make. Mine is made with a store bought pasta sauce. Note: This is also great when you add 1 cup chopped & cooked chicken breast to the alfredo sauce mixture.
