Here’s another recipe for stuffed shells. It’s not terribly vintage because it uses name brand items, but the handwriting is appealing all the same. Recipes often times are written by train of thought and don’t always follow exact steps. This is one of those. After you stuff the shells but before you lay them in the pan, put in 1/3 of your marinara sauce. Then, lay the stuffed shells open side down in a single layer. I always read a full recipe and it’s method before making it, so as to get the process straight in my head. Thanks Mom for teaching me that!!
