Today marks the first day of a semester of regular (non-culinary) college classes for me in over a year. You might recall me mentioning taking a break from culinary school...

    I think it's a great idea having shrimp in something like this! Can't believe I didn't think of it sooner – my husband will love this πŸ˜€

    I also never would have thought to put shrimp in a pasta dish like that but it really does sound good!

    …will you tell me just a bit more about the kind of shrimp you used? Would using cooked shrimp result in something too chewy? Thanks. I love your blog!

      Deb – don't use use cooked! Raw is the way to go – it cooks completely in the oven without becoming overcooked (chewy and tough). I usually buy frozen shrimp to save money, the size of the shrimp should be labeled on the packaging but don't concern yourself too much with the size since it's going to be chopped up anyways.

    I love seafood and will most certainly be giving this recipe a try, but I'll avoid using the tiny frozen shrimp coming from overseas labeled as “Cocktail Shrimp'. In my experience they always smell fishy, and we all know what that indicates when dealing with seafood. This recipe deserves better than that.

    My husband will definitely love this. He adores cheese and shrimps and anything with them…A green salad with this dish and I have a perfect dinner to serve. Thanks for sharing!

    Stuffed shells are one of my favorite meals, especially since they usually feed us for a few days πŸ™‚ Love that these are from Cooking Light, I've yet to break into this issue, but looks like a winner!
