Today’s post is sponsored by Mezzetta, but my love for their Marinara products is all my own! #TheStoryofSauce #MarinaraSauce This deliciously cheesy and flavor-filled stuffed shells recipe is sure to be a hit.
There is something about Italian food that makes everything better. The combinations of gooey cheese, juicy tomatoes, and Italian seasoning are things dreams are made of. We had the opportunity to travel to Italy a few years ago and I will never forget it. I could eat real Italian pizza and gelato for every meal. And for the time that we were there, I did. Being back stateside has put a damper my tastebuds as I have been unable to find any real Italian food since we have been back, so cooking it at home is as close as I can get. P.S. You can enter to win a trip to Italy HERE, thanks to Mezzetta.
These stuffed shells are like little mouth-watering bombs of cheesy goodness. The sausage adds the perfect texture and boost of flavor. I usually make half with and half without sausage, just in case my toddler is being particularly picky. You can substitute with shredded chicken instead, make some yummy Italian meatballs on the side, or omit the meat all together. The beauty of Italian food is that the possibilities and flavor combinations are endless! Get creative!
This Mezzeta Marinara Sauce is one of the best marinara sauces I have ever had. It is SO full of flavor. My favorite is the Whole Garlic and Sweet Basil flavor. The tomatoes are even grown in the rich soils of Italy’s San Marzano region. And the sauce is real you guys. It is all natural with no sugar. Which is important to me when choosing food for my family.
