These yummy stuffed pasta shells will make any luncheon special, assures Wendy Lee Guerin of Fridley, Minnesota. "I experimented with various cheeses, herbs and spices until I found that just-right blend. Try adding chopped walnuts for extra protein and a little crunch."

    I love this recipe. I have been encouraging meals without meat, at least once a week, and this is one my family enjoys. The shells can be a little fussy, but it's worth the potential hassle. The taste is great!
