How To Make Stuffed Shells For Dinner
The days are getting shorter, and I am so ready for some cooler weather. I am not sure if it is hotter than usual, but it is humid with no rain, making it drier than usual. This is the rainy season for Florida. It usually rains every single day. Our average has been rain every seven days or so, just to weird, at least for the past month. This could lead to big problems with drought come the dry season. Anyways I love to make stuffed shells, lasagna, and other yummy casseroles. However, the oven does not come on in the months of June through August, unless you like to be baked yourself. Stuffed shells are way easier to make than lasagna, and you always have tons leftover. It is filling, and healthy. You can add almost anything you like including onions, mushrooms, ground beef, or sausage. The spinach one is the healthiest. Don't forget you can always use part skim ricotta and mozzarella cheese as well, to cut down on the fat. There are recipes I have tried for lasagna in the crock pot, but it just isn't the same.
