Usually Mr. Aitch and I discuss what’s for dinner. Just so he knows what wine to select. But on Sunday I told him what we were having: Stuffed Shells. He seemed a bit reluctant with that choice as he didn’t quite know what that meant. But I made my decision. After all, I. Am. The. Cook.
I am the one who does most of the prep work regardless of what we’re having and how it’s cooked. Mr. Aitch may do the actual grilling when it comes to our summer fare but during the rest of the year, it’s usually me in the kitchen from start to finish.
So on Sunday I made (for the first time ever) cheese stuffed shells using the recipe on the back of the San Giorgio box.
I almost doubled the sauce amount (I don’t like dry pasta) and added cooked sweet Italian sausage and ground beef to the sauce as “some people” in my house need meat for dinner.
Mr. Aitch said it was the BEST pasta dish I’ve ever prepared.
This recipe is definitely a keeper.
Sorry there’s no picture of our meal.
It didn’t last long enough…
Have you ever stuffed manicotti? Another good pasta choice.
No, I’ve not tried that. It can’t be that hard since I’ve mastered shells, right?
I love to make it… And eat it! So glad it was a hit at your house.
Well, it is because of you that I tried it. Thank you!
