This is another recipe I ran across early in our marriage 30 short yrs ago. (I bought a little blank, hardbound book to write special recipes in). DH loves it. Falls into the comfort food category. Cheesy and mmm, mmm good. Add a salad, and dinner is complete!


  1. Cook shells and drain (while waiting, go on to next steps).
  2. Brown ground beef and drain. Add salt, pepper, and marinara sauce. Simmer 20 minutes.
  3. In deep pan, line bottom with 1/2 of the shells. Cover with half of the meat sauce. Spread half of the sour cream lightly over and then sprinkle with half of both the cheeses. Repeat.
  4. Cover and bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.
  5. Uncover and bake 20 minutes more.

My kids absolutely loved this dish. I made it as directed but cutting the recipe in half and probably used a little less cheese. My daughter said she liked it better than lasagna and then took some with her for babysitting tonite. My son requested that I make this again. Thank you kstrating for wonderful easy recipe that I will make again. Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
