      I can't believe this hasn't got 100 reviews. Only thing I did to change it up was to add black olives, which are a favorite of mine. Delllliciousssss shells! Thank you for sharing!

      OMG! I can't believe that I'm the first to review this recipe! It is sooo delish!!! I've been trying out some others, and they were pretty good. Besides being great already, I think the Parmesan pushed it over the top! My hubby was in heaven and talked it for days! He doesn't say much one way or the other, but this one had him going! Thanks Kitten for sharing and for this delicious recipe. I'll be making this again and again!
