Stuffed shells are one of my favorite meals to make for my family for dinner.  I like that you totally personalize it. If you want it vegetarian then bump up the veggies; I like to add broccoli! You can even add cooked sausage or chicken and it’s  a full meal.

This makes a great freezer meal too! When I make this I usually make enough for 2 meals. I then freeze one and had it later for a quick home cooked meal!
