    KelBel's Note:

    A combination of two of my favorite Italian dishes, stuffed shells and pasta carbonara. A little time consuming, but worth it.

      Huge, huge hit with the husband! He almost ate the whole pan himself! Really easy to put together and the parmesan/bacon sauce is so rich and yummy! I would even make more of the sauce next time. DH wants this again soon!

      Delicious! Easy to put together and very tasty! I used fresh baby leaf spinach and made otherwise as directed. Thank you, KelBel!
