Easy & Delicious Cheesy Stuffed Shells

We are a family of pasta lovers. Normally Matt and my kids will not touch a dinner that does not include at least 50% meat. These amazing Stuffed Shells seem to be the exception to that rule. This recipe makes a huge pan and we never ever have leftovers even when I serve it with garlic bread and a side salad. It’s just that good.

Doesn’t that look mouthwatering? It tastes even better than it looks! Sometimes I even substitute some of the spaghetti sauce for V8 juice to add a little extra veggie serving without my kids knowing. Hey, a mom has to what a mom has to do, am I right?
