Italian Shells Casserole

Italian Shells Casserole created by ladycloud_2843672

This is another recipe I ran across early in our marriage 30 short yrs ago. (I bought a little blank, hardbound book to write special recipes in). DH loves it. Falls into the comfort food category. Cheesy and mmm, mmm good. Add a salad, and dinner is complete!

    This was delicious! In order to cut down on the calories, I used ground turkey and low fat cheeses and sour cream. Since I make my own marinara sauce, it was already low fat. I found that the amount of shredded cheeses and marinara called for in the recipe were not enough for me, so I added an additional. However, the next time I make this, I will substitute the sour cream with ricotta cheese for a more lasagna tasting dish.

    My kids absolutely loved this dish. I made it as directed but cutting the recipe in half and probably used a little less cheese. My daughter said she liked it better than lasagna and then took some with her for babysitting tonite. My son requested that I make this again. Thank you kstrating for wonderful easy recipe that I will make again. Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
