These were interesting - didn't have a strong Mexican taste to me but it was a nice variation on the traditional Italian style shells. We made ours vegan by crumbling up some Gimme Lean fake Sausage in place of the ground beef and using a soy cheese medley.

I had some leftover taco meat to use up and tried your recipe. It was delicious! I made as written except fried up the onions a bit in oil then added the leftover meat and salsa. It worked like a charm and my family was none the wiser!!!! Thank you for sharing this great recipe, I plan on using it again when I need something quick.

These were simple and really good. My grandson devoured these. I used a Mexican 4-blend cheese and added a few jalapenos on the side. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.

So delicious! My husband raved through every bite. I am making again tonight. I have also made with chicken because I was out of beef, and they were great! Thank you for the great recipe.

I multiplied this recipe by 4 as I wanted to freeze it in individual portions. I used lasagne sheets as I couldn't find big shells so it became 18 foil takeaway containers of Mexican lasagne .Very quick and easy to make for such a load of food. Must say it was really yummy, with all my family thoroughly enjoying it. I served it with a nice big salad. This will become a regular when I do a bulk cooking session. Thanks for sharing :)

I didn't like this but my husband thought it was okay. Probably won't make again.

I made the whole recipe and froze half. It was very good and you can tailor to your own heat preferences. I will half the tomato sauce as it was a strong flavor and I added some cumin and a pinch of sugar to cut the "tomatoey" flavor. Love this idea for a great meal, thank you Pamela!

It's not often that all three of my boys agree on something, but this recipe received a 5/5 rating from all three. While stuffing the pasta is a bit time consuming, with my eldest son helping it took us only a few minutes to finish it. I did add a pinch of hot pepper flakes to the sauce to kick it up a little, particularly as I was using mild salsa. Will be putting this into the rotation as a make-ahead dish to pull out of the freezer and have dinner ready with no work.

It was ok I would decrease or eliminate the tomato and increase the salsa.

I loved these tasty little shells! I don't know if I made a mistake, but I had a LOT of sauce. It was still good, but I think I will half the sauce next time. That way I won't waste as much salsa.
