Artichoke Spinach Shells

"I found this recipe in a magazine years ago," recalls Rachel Balsamo of Lewiston, Maine. "If you're looking for a vegetarian meal, it's wonderful as the main course. We like to serve it with hot dinner rolls and a salad."

    You'd never know there was sour cream in it. It is wonderful. If you like artichokes you must try it!!! It was in a Taste of Home magazine a few years ago and I actually found it while waiting at the hairdresser's. It's a family favorite.
