Pesto Stuffed Shells

Happy Valentine's Day!!! We are going to Hot'Lanta for V-Day, so we did our at home V-Day tonight. I made stuffed shells, garlic rolls and cupcakes. The stuffed shells were restaurant quality. Tadd does not like cheese stuffed shells, but he cleaned his plate (twice) with these!!

    1. Just depends on how many shells everyone eats. I would guess 6-8.
