    I made this for dinner last night with all the exact ingredients except I couldn't find jumbo shells so I used large shells. It is delicious and such a great quick meal. Loved it!

    I made this on a week night and the thing that took the longest was boiling the noodles. I was impressed by how easy this was but more importantly that my picky six year old eat it with no problem. I can't wait to make this again so I can have leftovers for lunch.

    I don't do much of the cooking in our house. I saw this recipe on the website so I figured I would give it a try. It was easy to make and as I stated the family loved it. I used fresh broccoli instead of the frozen which we enjoyed.

    I've never made anything like this and I'm trying to experiment and learn how to cook new things since I'm finally living on my own. This was really easy to make and I added ground beef and used spinach instead of broccoli. I would just recommend using a bit more seasoning if you are someone who enjoys flavorful meals. Overall this was great and there were lots of leftovers.
