Its so good! We made made a little more than the recipe said, but it turned out amazing still!

Since I can’t get shells in Taiwan, I stuffed Ziti. Turned out fine, except the ziti probably needed about 10 more minutes than the shells would have.
Paula Hall 22 Jul 2018
So good! You could taste all the flavor, the cheeses and the herbs! I would definitely recommend you try this recipe!
Hi Slip 22 May 2018
Fantastic ,we added some blue cheese and a can of cherry tomatoes
Ann B. 4 May 2018

Kerrie 1 May 2018
Really good! I will use a little less basil and pepper next time though.
Kerry Vincent 30 Nov 2017

Lammie K. 18 Nov 2017
came out great. a new family fav!
Mrs. Mann 1 Nov 2017
Very good. Next time I will add more sauce. I also added a mixture of freshly chopped spinach and basil to add a little more flavor. My husband loved the dish.
Jeff H. 13 Oct 2017
Awesome! Definitely make again I used all 160z of the ricotta cheese and maybe went over on the sauce but they still turned out great! I also added a half pound of pork sausage, defeats the purpose of trying to be a more healthy meal but it was so good and your still eating spinach right??
Ashley Stephenson 4 Oct 2017
We loved this recipe! It was a bit too salty for us so we will only add half the salt next time.
Tamar Singer 14 Aug 2017
Delicious! I couldnt find jumbo shells but it worked well with large penne and a homemade marinara sauce. I also added some mozzarella and basil on top
Emily Marchesiello-Francome 3 Aug 2017
These were so good! My family thoroughly enjoyed. I added a little extra basil and garlic. Yummy!
Ebony P. 23 Jul 2017

Nicholaa O. 12 Jul 2017
This recipe is amazing. Super flavorful & just like mom used to make. I added a little fresh italian parsley & grated romano cheese.
Cathy P. 24 Jun 2017
Delicious with a big green salad plus a crusty Italian baguette! A healthy meal to die for!! I will definitely make this often!
Suzanne J. 24 Jun 2017
Really Good! Followed recipe and made no changes. Definitely will have again!!
Crystal Garcia 16 Jun 2017
Excellent! The only thing I did differently was add extra sauce because that's what my husband likes. It was a huge hit!
Hi 6 Jun 2017
Fantastic my wife and daughter loved it and so did I
Heather H. 19 May 2017
Easy, yummy and customizable. Family favorite especially with my 4 year old!
Donna G. 12 May 2017
expensive to make.. not enough flavor.. tried this new recipe for cards nite.. good thing I had lots of munchies and fruit after.. served it with mini meatballs, salad and garlic toast.. wouldn't do it again.. sorry..
Sheila S. 1 May 2017
Not too complicated to make and very delicious. I made it with whole milk ricotta to make it extra creamy (and fatty!) but oh so worth it!
Annie Sakae 21 Apr 2017
Easy to make and delicious ! This is going to enter the group of dishes I rely on to be easy and tasty
Shauneen M. 12 Feb 2017
This was fantastic! I added a little cracked pepper to the mix and it was delish. Also used bottled sauce to save time.
Peggy W. 2 Feb 2017
I didn't want to waste the ricotta, so I used all 16 ozs. in the container and added more of the other cheeses as well as some sauteed chopped onions. I boiled 20 shells, stuffed them and put 4 each in 5 porcelain bowls. I added a whole jar of Paul Newman's Cabernet Marinara, split evenly in each bowl. 4 went into the freezer, 1 in the oven. I enjoyed it with homemade garlic bread and a glass of Merlot. I will be making this again. Thank you for the recipe!
Nav 3 Jan 2017
Loved this, as did my entire family!! This does make a lot of mix - enough for more than 16! I increased the sauce also. So easy and delicious! Must try!
