    Carrie Ann's Note:

    This is one of the nicest pasta dishes I've ever eaten.The balance of the ingredients allow all the flavours to come through without any singular one dominating .This is a favourite that I am repeatedly asked to bring to buffet dinners.

      My family loves cheesy Italian meals. This tasty dish is now everyone's standing Italian favorite. I even used a very cheap portion of ground beef, and instead of Prego, used a less costly brand of spaghetti sauce, and this still turned out beautifully! Luckily, this made more than 20 shells for me...more like 30. Thanks, Carrie Ann, for a spectacular recipe!

      My family REALLY enjoyed this dish! I used cottage cheese instead of the ricotta becoause no-one in my family really cares for ricotta. A very nice alternative to just the cheese filled shells. Served with garlic bread and a green salad. Lovely Sunday dinner. Thank you for posting! ~Manda

      Good! Easy enough for a weeknight meal and perfect with a green salad. The beef made for a hearty meal that kept my oldest boy happy. I used 24 shells and Muir Glen sauce. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
