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 am not a vegetarian by any means, but this looks AMAZING! However, my neighbor is a vegetarian and I really would LOVE to do something nice for her by making her dinner. So I was wondering if this is a freezer friendly meal? I mean could I make a huge batch for her dinner and then have some leftovers for her to freeze??

    Hi Shana! I haven’t frozen them myself but I think it would work great! You could probably do it a couple of ways. 1) you could make the whole dish (doubled even if you wanted a lot) and then she can simply freeze the leftovers. Or you could leave half of it disassembled and she could freeze the filling separate from noodles and cook the noodles fresh. 🙂

My house has made this several times! It was even requested by my mother to be her birthday dinner. It is SO good and such an easy dinner.

My Boyfriend and i really loved this! we followed the recipe exactly. This OBVIOUSLY ISN’T a low calorie meal, but do you have an estimated calorie count?
