I've made this recipe several times and it is AMAZING! I doubled the marinade because I felt like not enough of the meat and veggies were being covered. I will usually flip the container at least once while it is marinating to make sure everything is soaking up the awesome awesome flavor. Also, really, only 2 tbs of cheese? I do a big handful!

This recipe was UNREAL! The marinade it where it's at! I put everything together in the morning and looked forward to it all afternoon! It took s alittle bit of time to actually put everything together but it was so worth it. My husband and our friend LOVED them and two of us had seconds. I think generally the shells need to be in the oven a little bit longer than 15 minutes because they weren't quite heated all the way through. This is definitely recipe we'll add to our regular rotation :) Thank yoU!
