I'm giving this 4 stars because I had a little trouble understanding the directions as is. When making dishes with puff pastry I have always baked the dish in the oven with the frozen puff pastry but this one says to bake first and then fill without any further baking. I think that the flavors may blend better if the dish was baked with the frozen pastry. Also as is the recipe mentions shells in a plural manner implying that I should have baked the puff pastry for individual servings and then fill but there was no instruction about how many, ect. so I felt the instruction was lacking a bit. The flavor was good, not outstanding, but good and almost comforting.
