My first try at making stuffed shells. Sam and I agree that they'd be better with more basil and oregano. We're going to try buying the frozen stuffed shells to see if they taste as good as the homemade ones. If so--we're going frozen all the way. They cost about as much as making them by scratch and save a lot of time. However, I might be dissuaded if anyone has a GREAT recipe for them from their Italian great-great-grandmother. Either way, they're certainly pretty.
