Three Cheese Pasta Shells

I know this recipe has DANGER written all over it. Trust me when I say it is. We’ve been eating off of it for two days. We’re a household hooked on dairy and carbs but hey – we’re a happy couple of gals LOL! Pair this with a Pinot Grigio (from Italy, not CA) and you’ll be in a cheese lovers heaven. And there’s broccoli in it! That way you can say you had your green veggies. At least that’s our story and we’re sticking to it. 🙂

Buon Appetito!
