    Shermm's Note:

    I found this recipe in a magazine a couple of years ago and it is a favorite at our house. We love cream cheese so I usually add a bit more than what the recipe calls for. The original recipe says you can double it and freeze one pan for up to 90 days. I haven't tried that but if you do, let me know how it turns out.

      I recommend using cream cheese with chives and onions. It gives the stuffing alot more flavor. Great dish. everyone loved it.

      I think next time I make this kind of dish, I will cook the pasta less, as cooking them till they are done (following the box directions) made the shells very soft and mushy by the time they were done. Probably will look for another recipe to try next time too and see if there is one with more flavor. These were kind of bland with just the taco seasoning. Thank you for sharing with us though!

      This is really really good! I prepared 15 shells but ended up needing more so I boiled an additional 5 and that was just perfect (I didn't overstuff mine which may be why). I used all salsa because I forgot to buy taco sauce and that worked just fine. Served with sour cream. Yummy!
