Recipe: Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Shells
***Update 2016: This recipe is still one of our favorites. It's been awhile since I made them but my inlaws came up for dinner the other night and wanted pasta. I decided this was the perfect meal. Enjoy the posts from past years. It's a keeper. The original post was back in 2010.
**NOTE** I made this originally last March and posted it then, but yesterday I made it again and then happened upon Tasty Tuesday and decided to Re-post it, since it is such a yummy meal and everyone raves about it! So...from the original post a year ago... Yesterday we had company for lunch. I get immense pleasure from cooking for not only my family, but others as well. I decided on a dish that we have had twice before and it was such a huge hit that even the pickiest people like it. My youngest wasn't sure about it because she's not a fan of spinach, and one of our guests (whom we'd invited last minute) even said they were pretty good....and he's pretty finicky. I've linked to this before (I got the recipe from Paula Deen's site) but thought I'd include the full recipe here.
I also served garlic bread. Sometimes when I'm in a jam I'll just buy already prepared garlic bread from the store and it's good. But there's really nothing better than doing it yourself. I know there are so many recipes out there, but I usually just keep it pretty basic. Salad tied it all together....and for dessert: Angel Food Cake with blueberries, strawberries and homemade whipped topping. Of course, I just realized I didn't take pictures of the dessert. I think my husband thinks I'm weird to take pictures of food....oh well.
We had a wonderful meal, great conversation and then played the wii. It was a fun day with friends. Tomorrow I'm going to share a great way for reheating leftover garlic bread!!
