Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Shells




Pasta shells are something that we would never make before creating our food blog. Before our blog, I thought that pasta shells could only be made with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. However, as we started experimenting more with different foods, we realized how versatile this awesome pasta could actually be. Stuffing any sort of ingredients inside of pasta shells highlights the amazing flavors of those foods. Stuff pasta shells with seasonal vegetables or flavorful, delicious spices, and a tasty meal is born. Probably the best thing about pasta shells is that they are so simple to stuff, bake and devour.
