Recipe of the Week #52- Pizza Stuffed Shells

Pizza Stuffed Shells

1 lb beef
garlic salt
1 jar pizza sauce
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
12 large pasta shells
2 cups mozzarella cheese

Brown beef. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Drain grease. Add about 1/2 -3/4 cup pizza sauce. Add cream cheese. Cover and simmer until cheese is melted.
Set aside and allow to fully cool.
While beef is cooking, cook pasta shells.
Pour enough pizza sauce to cover bottom of 9"x13" dish. Stuff each shell with meat mixture. Place shells in baking dish and cover the tops of shells with the rest of the pizza sauce.
Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle cheese on top. Bake another 10 minutes.

This is a modified version of the taco stuffed shells I made here. I thought, if taco meat tastes good in these shells, pizza meat would be awesome! And it is! I usually stick to a recipe and make few if any alterations. This is one time when I went off the beaten track and discovered something great:)

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

It is better to put trust in the Lord
than to put confidence in man.
