The actual recipe itself needed some extra flavors, but it was nothing I don't usually add to a meat dish. I used and onion powder and extra pepper. Mixing the meat up the night before really helped bring out the yummy flavors too. I didn't feel like red sauce that night, so I used a can of stewed tomatoes on the bottom of my pan and covered the shells with a white parmesan sauce. It was delicious!
I even froze half of the shells and they made a great 'easy meal' that next week.
Thanks for the recipe!
