    Whisper's Note:

    This is a tasty recipe, especially if you take the time to make your own sauce. (Sometimes I cheat and use bottled - not as good.) I choose to omit the sausage and go meatless. The first time I took this to a church supper, I was asked for the recipe. Cook time includes time to cook sauce and bake in oven.

      Very good! I've been looking for a nice recipe for stuffed shells and I've found it. I used my own homemade spaghetti meat sauce for this but otherwise followed the recipe as written. We liked the addition of chives to the cheese mixture....Thanks Whisper!

      This was amazing! DH said "best sauce ever". Followed recipe exactly except doubled it, added 3 -10oz packages of spinach and a 16 oz container of cottage cheese (these amounts were for a double recipe. I had enough to feed 4-6 families a nice sized dinner. Oh, I also put it in the broiler for a few minutes to broil the cheese on top. yum! Oh, and he said I never need to make lasagna again. Thanks, Whisper.
