Taco Stuffed Shells

We love tacos over at our house and we loved any kind of stuffed pasta. This was one meal that I felt was sure not to disappoint... It takes a little time to do all the stuffing of the shells but once you get past that part these are such a yummy meal!! I just got all these ready during nap time and popped them in the oven before all the daycare kids left and we were ready to roll when everyone walked out the door. That works pretty well on a busy weeknight! Not to mention the fact that ALL my kids loved this meal and you know that doesn't happen every day! :)
