Prepared Alfredo sauce streamlines the preparation of the tasty stuffed shells. They're filled with shrimp, mushrooms and green onion. For a fast finish, complete the meal with Caesar salad and crusty French bread. Or serve sauteed zucchini followed by cubed cantaloupe and watermelon for dessert.—Gertrude Peischl, Allentown, Pennsylvania
