I haven't had a chance to try as many Pioneer Woman recipes that I want to... But, I'm trying to work a few in here and there. When I stopped by her cooking blog earlier this week I decided I should give this one a try. So, I'll give you all the link here and let you know my/our thoughts!!!
In my opinion, the most important part of this is letting the sauce cook for as long as you have time for. I only let it cook for about 45 minutes and it was delicious, but if I had the time I would have given it another 45 minutes. I just love the taste of long & slowly simmered home made sauces!!! :) I also would have preferred to use more sauce. Adding a cup of water while it's simmering would help stretch it a bit. Also, I realized that I only bought regular shells, not jumbo. So... Um... I stuffed a lot more shells! Ha! That's the only difference that I can see though...
I took a few pics, but really? Who am I to out do P-Dub's recipes? I mean, she takes a picture of each step for the love! It's that easy for us to follow!!! :) So if you want to see pictures of this yummy recipe... go HERE!!! :) I served ours with fresh green beans with some granulated garlic and butter spray! I thought it was great... Brandon put it above spaghetti (he really doesn't prefer sketti) and below lasagna (he loves zanyah) so... those are our ratings!!!
Oh, I also made a dish for our friends that just had a baby girl today. I plan on giving it to them tomorrow. I went ahead and baked it and they can just warm it up in the oven... Easy!!!
