Three Cheese Stuffed Shells
Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe is very special to me because it is one of the first recipes I made for my fiance. He fell in love with the recipe and he fell in love with me. I taught him how to make Three Cheese Stuffed Shells and now we make these together. I love cooking with him! I am so excited to marry him in July and continue cooking together. We would be so excited to win the stand mixer!
