Kids Cooking Stuffed Shells

Here is a delicious dinner your kids can actually make,. I found this recipe in my Taste of Homes Magazine. The minute I saw it, I knew I wanted to try it.

It really tasted good, and the girls were so proud of themselves.

The Ingredients: 1 package (12 oz) Jumbo shells
1 jar (26 oz) spaghetti sauce
36 frozen cooked Italian Meatballs (1/2 oz each), thawed
2 cups (8oz)shredded part-skim Mozzarella cheese

Cheyanne shredded the cheese. Yes, she is young for this, but that is what happens when your the 4 th child.

1. Cook shells according to package. Drain and rinse with cold water.

Place 1/2 cup of sauce in a greased 13 in x 9 in baking dish.
Place a meatball in each shell, and place in prepared dish.

Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle with cheese.

Cover and bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Uncover: bake 5-10 minutes longer or until bubbly and cheese is melted.

YUM! I LOVE stuffed shells and haven't had them in a while, it's going on the shopping list. My 4yo LOVES to grate cheese and he learned very quickly to keep his fingers away!

Yum! This looks super easy and since my 3-year old loves to help with anything I'm doing in the kitchen, this will be one she can easily help with! Look forward to trying this out!

It looks absolutely amazing. We actually had stuffed shells tonight. The recipe I used called for spinach and cottage cheese. I am not a spinach eater, and neither is anyone else in our family, but we all ate it and are having it for leftovers for lunch tomorrow!!!! (We are trying to reduce our red meat intake, lol)
