Comfort food at it's finest! You can sub out veggies for your favorites, this is just a starting point. We like to use chicken breasts in place of the italian turkey sausage, too. This is a great recipe to take to a pot luck, or freeze half for later. Makes lots and lots!

This was an awesome recipe. There were a few steps, but nothing too difficult. I cut the recipe in half,using an 8x8 pan (you need 15 shells for those who are wondering) with no problem at all. I also substituted chopped spinach for the brocolli, a taste preference for me. I asked my hubby how many stars and he said 5. Believe me, that is the highest compliment! Thank you ChefKimmie
