Also, this is a Weight Watchers meal, for all you constant dieters out there. 7 pts for 3 shells
This recipe is very simple. The only troubling part is after boiling the shells and removing them from the hot water al dente and still in one piece. Just take your time and let the shells cool a bit. Get out a couple casserole dishes and anyone can lend a hand when making this super simple recipe.
I found this recipe to be great when you rely on leftovers to provide for additional meals. I made a big batch the night before Thanksgiving so we had that for dinner and a suitable brunch while cooking up turkey. I cant stand waiting to eat on holidays so I think eating the whole day should be the rule.
Anyway, back to the recipe rating.
