This zesty layered casserole is a real crowd-pleaser. It was one of our children's favorites when they were young...now our grandchildren love it! Plus, it's easier to make than traditional lasagna. —Mrs. Leo Merchant of Jackson, Mississippi

MY REVIEW

Yummy weeknight dinner or a good potluck choice. I had medium, not small, shells but I think small are better. I also added fennel seed to the sauce as a previous reviewer suggested. I will definitely make this again.
