Beef and Cheese Shells

This recipe was in a church cookbook my sister-in-law gave me after I got married. I make this casserole for new moms just home from the hospital and it's always well received—Cindy Vanderweele, Sheboygan, Wisconsin

    This has been my go-to stuffed shell recipe for years. It's always a big family request.
