Big pasta shells or cannelloni make a great easy dinner, especially when served with crusty bread and a green salad.
Used different ingredients. My family LOVED this recipes!!! My 2 year old can be hard to please but it was no problem with this dinner and my husband finished off the leftovers by the next night! I made a few changes of my own which I felt made the recipe that much better. We're not big fans of bacon so I substituted the bacon for 3 Italian sausages. I removed the skin of them and chopped the meat up. Same cooking time and everything...just different meat. I found that using the sausage helped yield more shells as well. I also added a bit of grated cheddar cheese on top since we're all such big cheese lovers. But this recipes is DEFINITELY one I will be making again real soon!!! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. This was really good. I did make some changes (I used ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese. My bacon-crazy kids really liked this one. - 29 Sep 2008
Wow, were these ever rich! I made one change, I only had prosciutto in my freezer, so I used a couple of slices, but it ended up being incredibly salty (my mistake). However, I also thought the amount of cream cheese was almost overpowering. We ended up being able to stretch these quite a bit, only having two shells each per meal with a big salad. I think next time I make these, I will sort of borrow Cindy's idea below and sub half of the cream cheese with ricotta. - 29 Sep 2008
