Broccoli Alfredo Stuffed Shells

 I don’t know why, I’m just in a stuffing mood lately. Not turkey stuffing, although Thanksgiving is sneaking up on us pretty quick here. Gahhhh don’t talk about that, back to the non-holiday stuffing. I’ve been stuffing apples like a mad woman lately, no really, I may have a slight addiction. Thank heaven we’ve moved on to pasta right?

I love the flavors of alfredo pasta and if you haven’t tried it with broccoli, you need to, it’s amazing. A little extra flavor, a little texture, not to mention the extra health benefits… just sayin.

I’ve decided I really like this whole inside-out pasta idea. It’s a fun way to switch things up with traditional pasta flavors. This particular recipe is technically vegetarian, but feel free to throw some shredded chicken in the mix for an all-around family favorite dish!

i dont know if anybody has said this yet but alfredo sauce is NOT vegetarian. It is made from parmesan cheese which is made from rennet. In case anybody asks rennet is made from calf stomach lining.
