Stuffed Pizza Shells recipe

We made 3 pans of this last evening and was able to be a blessing to a couple families so they wouldn’t have to make dinner tonight.  It goes together quick and is a nice change from lasagna or pizza casserole.  Try it tonight with your family.

If you know me and my cooking, I cook by tasting everything to see how the flavors mold together, I suggest you do the same, experiment see what flavors and things you would like to add to this dish.
