Stuffed Shells

I am linking up with Kelly's blog for Show Us Your Life Friday.  The topic is pasta recipes and I couldn't pass it up, because I LOVE the stuffed shells recipe I make.  It is family friendly and it makes enough for two families.  I take it A LOT for meals and I always get rave reviews.  It is easy, it tastes great and kids love it!
