Freezer Meal: Stuffed Pasta

I have a confession to make: I love hands on food. Anything that involves assembly, I’m all over it. So, when I saw these heavenly things on Iowa Girl Eats last Friday, I knew that I had to make them. Stat. I had never seen (noticed) such huge pasta shells before, and I immediately fell in love. Love, I tell you. Giant pasta love.

The gist of it is this:

  1. Cook your pasta.
  2. Cook your meat.
  3. Stuff your pasta. (After this step, you could put them in a freezer safe container and save them for up to a month. When you want to eat them, take the container out of the freezer, leave it in the fridge to thaw, and then continue with step 4.)
  4. Pour marinara sauce all over the stuffed shells, and grate more cheese on top of it all.
  5. Bake!

Easy peasy. And oh-so-tasty.

Friday night dinner, anyone?

I wanna know: Do you have weekend dinner traditions?

I remember when I was younger, we would get take out pizza and a movie every other week on pay day. No matter what.
