Pizza Stuffed Shells – jumbo pasta shells stuffed with cheese, sausage and pepperoni ,topped with spaghetti sauce and mozzarella – SO good! Kids and adults gobble this up!! Can make ahead of time and freeze for later.
These stuffed shells were so delicious. I usually make just cheese stuffed shells, but this time I added sausage and pepperoni to make pizza stuffed shells. We both loved them. Chicken Legs said he actually prefers these shells to our usual stuffed shells. Feel free to add any other of your favorite pizza toppings like onion, pepper, mushrooms or ham. Anything goes! This is also a great dish to make ahead and freeze. I like to divide this into two 8-inch pans and bake one and freeze the other.
