Description

Stuffed pasta shells are a favorite for family style meals. In this recipe, the pasta is filled with a satisfying mixture of chicken, shallots, carrots, and arugula and then topped with grated cheese that melts and turns golden brown during baking. The shells are served with a pureed pumpkin and orange sauce alongside, for spooning over each portion. It's yet another way to make sure your kids get their daily dose of veggies.
