Story

Stuffed pasta shells are always a family-pleasing meal. They look so elegant, but are really just "down home" if you ask me. Even though you're filling the shells with veggies, your kids will love them because you cover it all up with cheese and spaghetti sauce. Very sneaky... and wonderfully wise.
