    Nicole Brummett's Note:

    Another recipe from an old school cookbook. This is easy for kids to help with. My 5 yr. old likes to help stuff the shells. You can also make this without the ground beef.

      This simple recipe is very easy on the pocketbook! I used 4 ounces of jumbo shells (13-15 shells) instead of manicotti. Then I individually quick froze the filled shells and put them into a freezer bag to be used later in a quick-to-assemble dish. Thanks!

      This was a great recipe for a meal in a hurry. The texture of the filling reminded me of something with cream cheese in it...mmm. I followed the recipe exactly, and I didn't think the mayo added a wierd taste at all. I do think I will use Italian sausage instead of ground beef next time as the filling was a little mild for our tastes, but I WILL make it again! Thanks.
