Lately, I’ve found myself less confident about a few areas in my life and if has definitely affected my ability to create content the way I’d like. This week has been rough, but making this recipe helped me through a panic attack and refreshed my mind. Pasta is my favorite go-to when needing the perfect comfort meal. And these stuffed shells will be the key to anyone’s heart. I created this recipe for anyone needing an easy weekday meal, a yummy dish to make for loved ones, and in preparation for those upcoming potluck opportunities.
Like many recipes, ingredients can easily be substituted. I used ground beef and Italian sausage as the main protein in the dish, but feel free to use ground turkey, chicken, or meat substitutes- it is important to cook properly, crumble meat, and season to your liking. Ground chicken and turkey tend to be very bland, so please use seasonings! In this recipe, I also “doctored” up my jarred sauce. When in a hurry, I like using a jarred sauce because it’s easier- be sure to add oregano, salt, pepper, garlic, and onion powder to give the sauce some quick flavor! If you’re feeling fancy, make a homemade sauce or used canned tomato puree.
