    Faitherbee's Note:

    My version of cheesy stuffed shells. I read a few recipes online, ( as well as then used a "frankenstein" technique to make them just like my mom does. I made my sauce kinda plain, I'm pregnant and not much for chunky stuff right now. When I'm not so picky, I will add zucchini and chunky stewed tomato. It fed 4 hungry adults and a two year old with about one portion of left overs so I would say it could comfortably feed five adults. As a side note, the sauce is a really great marinara, I have used it for meatball subs too!

      This was awesome- thank you for posting it! Very easy and tasty. My 2 year old & 10 month old LOVED it- it was the most silent, happy meal we've had yet. I used a 24 oz. jar of sauce and added a little more shredded mozzarella on top & it still came out great.

      Wonderful recipe that my very picky family loved. I was in a hurry when I made this so I left out the chopped onion, and I didn't have four cheese tomato sauce so just used tomato paste mixed with water, and it all turned out fantastic! We will make this again and again. Thanks!!
