Mexican Stuffed Shells

Our latest recipe test? Mexican Stuffed Shells from The Way to His Heart.

The verdict? Delicious!

Experiment confession: I couldn’t find wheat shells at the store, so I used wheat lasagna noodles and wrapped the filling inside. Otherwise I followed the directions. It was A LOT more work than I expected and FAR more than the original recipe called for. Next time I’ll just buy regular shells and call it a day.

This tastes like the best diner patty melt I’ve ever had. The crispy buttery toast combined with the juicy burger, melty cheese and tangy flavor from the BBQ sauce and crispy onion straws was absolutely amazing.
