30 Minute Meal: Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Shells

Like everyone else, I see recipes and videos on Facebook and I share with the intention of saving it to use later.  And, like a lot of people, I forget and never make that amazing recipe that I’d taken the time to share. Last night, I did it!  I followed through and made a recipe from Facebook that I saved & shared, and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

The recipe came from Dinner Then Desserts, and the picture alone made me want to lick my phone.  Of course, I tweaked the recipe a little, to feed a larger number, hide veggies from my kids, and to make it a bit more convenient.  The end result…literally, 5 shells left!  They ate everything.  They didn’t talk until they finished eating.  No complaining. No picking. No funny faces. No “eeew…what’s that!?!?” Nothing…just quiet, chewing.
