I have made a few stuffed shells in my time. But these, they beat all the other ones by a million. I actually made manicotti but doubled the recipe and ended up with a ton of filling so I bought some shells which I stuffed and froze… but we only waited like a week because they were SO good! These are seriously a favorite lately. Even getting picky Maddy ate 2 whole shells.
