So I have seen taco stuffed shells allllll over the internet and Pinterest and they looked awesome!! Except for one thing they all use cream cheese. Now my family loves cream cheese on bagels and in cheesecake and stuff like that but we don’t like cream cheese in savory fillings for enchiladas or lasagnas. So I started thinking of what we do like in our enchiladas so I could mimic it in these pasta shells and it came out awesome!! I would have loved to add corn and black beans but then I would have a riot on my hands from the picky eaters so I left those out. You can certainly add them in or add anything in you like, add jalapenos or green chiles or even kidney beans would be great here.
The other recipes called for topping the shells with salsa which I did not use. I thought an enchilada sauce would be much better in this recipe and we loved it!!!!
This recipe was really easy, can be changed a million ways and best of all will freeze beautifully.
