"These are exceptional stuffed shells, and a must make whenever I have to bring something to someone elses house. I get asked for the recipe all the time. It's that good! There are times when I add cooked hamburg or sausage in with the Marinara sauce. Just makes it even better!"

I added in a mix of sauteed sweet sausage and ground beef with onions and garlic and it came out so yummy. It was meaty and cheesey and we loved it!
