This week I decided to combine two of my favorite meals – chicken alfredo and stuffed shells. These chicken alfredo stuffed shells are one of my new favorite dinners because they are easy and so delicious!
I slightly altered my chicken alfredo lasagna roll ups recipe to make this chicken alfredo stuffed shells recipe, because lets be honest, I love pasta in all forms these stuffed shells included. I don’t care if its fettucine, stuffed shells, lasagna, orzo or penne, I am a noodle lover and thankfully Nate and Colby are too. In fact noodles are one of the few meals I know that Colby will always eat, so I’m often whipping up a quick batch of noodles for lunch, or making a bigger batch on Mondays for the rest of the week. Then I’ll usually just use some leftover or store bought pasta sauce from the fridge and Colby and I are happy campers.
For these stuffed shells I used Bertolli’s ® Alfredo Sauce which was perfect for making sure that our dinner was done in a jiffy! I had dinner ready to eat by the time Colby woke up from his afternoon nap and right when Nate got home from work. It was perfect timing!
After dinner we enjoyed a cool nice evening at the park. We took our dogs with us too. (Yes, plural – we got a new puppy about 3 weeks ago and she is adorable!) The dogs loved chasing each other, chasing the ball and chasing Colby and we all just enjoyed our time together.
These stuffed shells are so delicious full of a ricotta, parmesan cheese and chicken mixture.
Spread a layer of Alfredo sauce into your baking pan, then stuff your cheese chicken mixture into your shells and stuff them into your pan. Top with more Alfredo sauce and cheese and bake on up.
I used about 25 shells, which didn’t quite fit nicely into my pan so I had to stuff a few in between others to use up all my filling. I love freezing some of the shells up (either splitting it and freezing half) or baking it all and freezing leftovers (after we enjoy them for a few lunches later in the week.
We served the shells with some quick and easy garlic bread and it was such a delicious meal that the whole family just loved!
