  • When I first tried this I thought it was bland but I made it a second time and browned the meat first and made it in advance and refrigerated it over night and that made all the difference. How delicious! My family loves this! - 12/3/09

  • I personally did not enjoy this at all and I cooked everything to the "T". Maybe cooking the nnodles and meat before stuffing them would be better...and some extra flavor as I found this to be very flavorless with bad texture. Who knows, maybe I did do something wrong. - 11/18/09

    Thank you for this feedback. When I make this, I usually pre-make everything and refrigerate it overnight, then bake it the next day. I think that makes a difference in the flavors soaking in and the noodles softening up. So I've updated the recipe to reflect that. Maybe that will help.

    Hey there...thanks for catching my mistake...I updated the recipe to reflect that the picante gets poured on top of the shells before you put it in the oven.
