      My spouse eats in ph 3 of South Beach as a way of life, so I use whole wheat pasta. I couldn't find whole wheat shells, so I turned this into lasagna. I used a soft mexican cheese instead of the mexican blend, ground turkey instead of beef, and I added ground red pepper and ground chipotle for some heat and smokiness. He loved it!

      Really easy to make. A very good twist on stuffed shells. I always add more cheese, kept everything the same.
