These light, fresh-tasting stuffed shells really star as part of a luncheon menu. I came up with this distinctive combination of ingredients by accident one day using leftovers from other recipes. It's a cool summer main dish. — Phy Bresse, Lumberton, North Carolina

We really enjoy the stuffed shells. The dressing is the bomb. Thanks for sharing a delicious recipe.

We have enjoyed this for many years. I frequently make this with canned salmon. The filling is also great with crackers for a party or appetizer buffet.

This is one of our family favs. I have to omit the onions and peppers, so I bump up the carrots. Yum!

This is a family favorite and I make it at least once a month. My son doesn't like tuna so I have also make this with diced chicken for him.
