Cheesy Pasta-Stuffed Shells

I love pasta! These Cheesy Pasta-Stuffed Shells were the perfect Sunday dinner!

I’ve been seriously slacking on my wifely duties. Matt has been cooking and cleaning, he seriously is the best husband on the planet! He loves spaghetti more than anyone I know, but I’m constantly looking for ways to mix it up! I personally love mac and cheese and this blended both of our favorites! Give this dinner a try, it was super easy and also extremely delicious!
