  1. This makes a ton of very yummy tasting stuffed shells!!! I made the whole recipe, but made home-made sauce as I don't care for the store bought sauces. My 19 yo DS ate almost 1/2 of the 9 X 13 pan by himself and a couple of days later I took the leftovers to my DD's for lunch and both she and her boyfriend loved it. I have two 8 X 8 pans of the shells in the freezer for other dinners. I could only eat 2 stuffed shells, along with salad and garlic bread, before I was stuffed. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
  2. AWESOME!!! I made these for dinner and my boyfriend loved them, as did i! I added sausage to my sauce but other than that i made exactly as directed. So Good this will definately be a regular!
  3. Delicious! It made a lot, which is nice. The only thing I changed was to add some fresh grated nutmeg to the cheese mixture.
  4. A very nice dish, with lots of leftovers for another night. The only thing I did differently is sprinkle more mozzarella cheese on top (instead of parmesan cheese), but it's only because I had so much extra mozzarella and am trying to use it up before it's expiration date. But beyond my deviation, this is a truly fantastic meal! I look forward t trying the Lite version soon.
  5. OUTSTANDING! I made but half a batch in an 8"x8" baking pan & baked for just 30 minutes! Used homemade spaghetti sauce & was extremely happy with the results! Will definitely a keeper! [Made & reviewed as a recipenapped bonus tag in Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]
