    I made this last night. It was great even my kids loved it!! I did as others had suggested and added both some garlic and spinach to the filling. So good. I will be making this again. - 10/8/08

    this was very good but I added veggies to it....chopped spinach, a little grated onion and some grated carrots I mixed the veggies in with the cheeses. I'm big on throwing extra veggies in where ever I can. I want my kids to get lots of veggies and it helps cut down a little on the calories in dish - 9/29/08

    These were great! A lot easier than I though! In the filling I added shredded zucchini and carrot for more nutrition! I also included spinach instead of mushrooms, because my family doesnt eat mushrooms! Overall, great recipe!!!!! - 5/10/12

    Just had this for dinner. I'm a cheese lover and this great. I forgot to buy granulated garlic & used powder & it was alot but not overpowering. I used a whole jar of marinara and there was plenty of that leftover. I threw in some frozen bagged meatballs for my husband & that kept him satisfied. - 5/17/09

    Added zucchini, spinach, and substituted 2 oz of cottage cheese for skim ricotta and was pretty good. Although I had to triple the recipe for the whole box of shells. - 9/25/12
