Reviews forStuffed Pasta Shells
"I don’t see why not Carol. I was thinking the same thing. I would cook ground beef, add it to spaghetti sauce and then add to shells."
"I haven't made this yet. Would it work with ground beef added in the sauce?"
"The stuffed shells were super easy and delicious. Think I may try the steamed spinach next time since the frozen was a little chewy even after cooking them. Still delicious though."
"Excellent simple yet very tasty recipe - I've used this recipe for myself and taken it to friends houses - they're always gone in a hurry!"
"This is an amazing recipe. It has great flavor and excellent texture. I know people who only stuff their shells with ricotta which I very much dislike the taste. This recipe with the spinach and mozzarella cheese are a fantastic combination. Super Delicious and Super easy. Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"I forgot to add in my last rating that I make two 8 in. pans with this recipe and freeze one. I defrost before heating and it never fails. Tastes as fresh as when I made it."
"I have been making this for years and everyone, including all the grandchildren, love this recipe. So easy but looks like you worked for hours. Cheesy and just a wonderful taste in the mouth. I get asked for the recipe all the time."
"These stuffed shells turn out great. I added a little more ricotta cheese. Probably shouldn't have used all the spinach, but overall was very good!"
"very good recipe. i just made a few tweeks. I added parmesan cheese, a pinch of nutmeg, salt and some dried basil to the cheese mixture. Before a baked it, I topped the shells with the spaghetti sauce and parmesan cheese as well. My husband and even my kids loved it."
