Barbara this was a great recipe! I used the ground turkey. I also used a mixture of Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Delicious!!! Thank You

Outstanding! Served this with peas and carrots. My husband thought it was "delicious". The filling only was enough for half the shells I made, because I stuffed them really full.

Had this dish tonight for supper. Very good! We will have this again. Even my spinach hating hubby and son liked it. I used about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and a little salt & red pepper also. Next time I will use more tomato sauce too as it did dry out a bit after baking. Thanks for the recipe!
