what's for dinner? taco stuffed shell

How I made it:

  • I cooked hamburger meat first. I always use my micro cooker

  • Then I used my pasta boat to cook my jumbo shells. I made 14.

  • While my shells were cooking I added my taco seasoning to my meat. I make my own taco seasoning(TOP SECRET) you can use any store bought kind.

  • Next, I added 1/2 a cup of cottage cheese into the meat mix. (healthier than cream cheese)

  • I stuffed the shells with the meat mix. I put them in a tiny casserole dish. 7X11?

  • I topped them with salsa and taco sauce. Covered it with tin foil and put it in the oven. 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

  • Added taco cheese on top, uncovered it and cooked for another 10 minutes.

  • Chopped up some green onions and ate it with a little low fat sour cream!

It does take some time to make it. I think next time I will prepare it on the weekend and freeze it for the week!
