    Kathleen Constance's Note:

    Found this in a local grocery store flyer. It was delicious and quite easy to make! Crab could be substituted for the shrimp, I think, and I might try that in future.

      Delicious. Added spinach into the mixture and added some olives during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Really, really liked how it turned out and I am not into stuffed shells. Would definitely make this recipe again!
