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

"This was good. A few negatives. The filling did not hold together and spread out when you went to cut it. I also thought some type of additional seasoning is needed. Next time I may follow some of the other suggestions, such as adding garlic or using a flavored Alfredo sauce."

"These were easy and delicious!! I also added some Louis Kemp crab delights to the shrimp mixture. The alfredo sauce I had on hand already had mushrooms in it so that saved a step as well. I'll definitely make these again!!"

"This was really good. I think garlic would be a great addition. If you don't have enough shrimp, use tuna."

"This recipe is awesome! I couldn't get myself to use salad shrimp, so I used small shrimp from the meat deli department and cut them into 3 pieces. I used half roasted red pepper alfredo sauce and half garlic alfredo sauce and tripled the recipe for 4. Made a caesar salad and bought a tomato/basil focaccia bread. It all complimented each other. Wonderful dinner!! Thank you!"

"This was delicious and so easy to make. My 9 year old wanted to make this. I had to help some, but she did the majority on her own."

"My family loved this recipe! I will be making this often. I was a little surprised that there was no garlic in this recipe, but I used Ragu's roasted garlic alfredo sauce which added the garlic I desired. I also doubled the filling because this recipe only serves 3 and I have 4 in my family. I was able to fill up 20 pasta shells and my family ate the entire pan. Also, I added half a bag of baby spinach, sprinkled the top of the casserole with some of the leftover mushrooms and parmesan cheese."
