How to Make Stuffed Shells – Stuffed Shells Florentine

How to make stuffed shells

I had gallons of homemade tomato sauce to use up so I learned how to make stuffed shells and froze them for winter. I will pull these out after the Holidays when all my company is gone and I am too exhausted to cook. All I have to do is pop them in the oven. How easy and convenient.
