I am planning on trying these with our July fourth celebration. I'm going to try pouring cream of mushroom soup in to help keep the pasta from drying out!
very good...just did not reheat well for me
My husband and I thought these were very good. We used instant garlic mashed potatoes and melted cheddar in with them. I then thinly sliced an onion and sauted in butter poured over the top and baked as directed...my only complaint is the shells were dry...is there any way to reheat these without them drying out?
This is a family favorite.
A good recipe that the whole family enjoys!
