Dream Dinners: Italian Stuffed Shells

Happy New Year!!! I am so excited to see what 2018 has in store for me, but I know that thanks to Dream Dinners, I will be enjoying excellent meals that can be made quickly.  I will admit that I am a little bit behind on eating my December meals.  I had vacations, illnesses, out of town guests, and all the regular holiday crazy that kept me from cooking as much as I normally do.  However, thanks to some creative freezer work, I will have plenty of room to make my January meals on Friday.  I’m working on getting everything a little more organized for the New Year and that includes our eating habits.  I am going to work hard to make sure that we are getting quick, tasty meals on our table most nights of the week and I’m going to use my Dream Dinners meals to help make that happen. 


The last meal I made was on New Year’s Eve.  We were headed out to Whitestone Brewery’s New Year’s Eve/Anniversary Party and I wanted to make sure that we were well fed.  We walk to the party and this year the temperatures were a bit cooler than last year.  I was so glad that I pulled the Italian Stuffed Shells to eat that night.  I was able to cook this meal while I was getting ready to go out.  I heated my oven to 375 and placed my pan on a baking sheet.  I loosely covered it with foil and baked for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, I removed the foil and let it cook another 10 minutes uncovered.  We put together a quick salad and dinner was served.  I loved the use of 3 sauces-marinara, Alfredo, and pesto in this dish.  Mike liked that we were able to eat stuffed shells without the pain of having to make the filling and stuff them ourselves.  This was a delicious, simple, and filling meal that made our tummies warm before a cold walk.  As always, Dream Dinners was a good plan for a night we needed a quick and tasty meal.
