Reviews for Four-Cheese Stuffed Shells
"came out perfect! I was actually able to use 8 shells instead of 6.... we enjoyed it!"
"Delicious! Everyone in the house loved them, so we didn't have any leftovers!"
"Yummy and quick-prep."
"This was delicious and easy. Two out of three boys didn't care for the "green stuff" but the other one loved it. I cooked a whole box of pasta, tripled the recipe, threw the extra pasta I didn't have stuffing for back in to fininsh cooking. Saved some of the sauce (which I added meat to) and the other 2 were happy. This made leftovers for Sunday lunch for the ones who liked it. It was just as good the next day."
