My husband and kids LOVE anything with alfredo sauce. I whipped up these Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells in a matter of minutes and they ate it just as quickly. I love recipes that my picky eaters love.
If you are looking for a simple and delicious dish, this recipe has your name written all over it. It is so simple to throw together on those busy nights, where you have no time to prepare a dinner, and everyone keeps asking you what’s for dinner.
It’s quick, simple, full of flavor, and so easy.
sneak in extra veggies:
The thing I love about this recipe, is it’s so easy to sneak in extra vegetables. You could easily throw in more spinach, or even broccoli, peas, carrots, zucchini, celery, squash, etc. It’s so tasty and so easy to disguise veggies in this recipe, if you have picky eaters.
I will usually throw in an extra handful or two of spinach, because as it cooks, it shrinks down a little. They would never guess what is in the shells.
is this recipe easy to double?
This recipe is extremely easy to double. You will just need a larger pan, or a second pan, if you plan to double it. It’s also very filling, so it’s the perfect meal to feed a crowd.
could i prepare this recipe ahead of time, and bake it later?
For this recipe, I recommend baking it fresh. However, I would say if you prepared it in the morning, then baked it a few hours later, or later that day, it would be just fine.
I would not let it sit in the fridge, without baking it for more than 24 hours, because the noodles will get soft when they are stuffed, it the perfect noodle texture will be lost.
