Great cheese filling. I used a good store bought sauce adding a 1lb of mind Italian sausage. This is a keeper.

It did not make enough to fill a whole box of shells, but my pan would not have held a whole box of shells so it worked out well. I added a box of frozen spinach, about 9oz, instead of using any meat. It turned out really well and I definitely will make it again.

Pasta and meat are not on ingredients list...I noticed the pasta was missing but not the meat until I was elbow deep in the recipe...otherwise good recipe

Something is off with this recipe - not enough to stuff a box of shells.
