But first, can we talk grammar?
There are probably many instances on this blog where I have written NUMEROUS grammatical errors. Perhaps I’ve already done so in this post. Many of you take the time to let me know, which is no biggie to me. I usually don’t fix them, but if you want to send me emails and comments that’s up to you. Unless it is in my recipe card below, I tend to let it slide. Sorry.
But my 13 year old daughter takes it one step further. You see, in her Language Arts class her teacher wants them to provide examples of grammatical errors. In return, they get a piece of candy. They can show up to 5 examples a day.
You know where this is going right?
Oh yes, my darling daughter brings my blog posts as an example to her teacher of WHAT NOT TO DO. I mean, seriously? “Hey teacher, I have an example of a grammatical error. My mom, she writes a blog for a living for millions of readers every month, and let me show you how bad she writes.”
LOL. Whatever kid. I will continue to say anyways instead of anyway. 🙂
Now, how about these pasta shells? These easy, delicious, make ahead Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells!!
How to make Chicken Alfredo Stuffed Shells
Make shredded chicken ahead of time. Put some frozen chicken breasts or thighs in your crockpot for 6-8 hours on low with a little salt and pepper (no liquid). Take your hand held mixer and “shred” your chicken in SECONDS. (It’s seriously that easy).
Use a 2 Tbsp metal cookie scoop to portion out your filling into the shells. This is such an easy way to evenly fill each pasta shell!
Once all your shells are filled, place them on a cookie sheet and freeze them for 15-30 minutes. At this point you can place them into gallon sized ziploc bags that are labeled with directions for future dinners. Unless of course your family can consume 40 stuffed shells in one sitting! We eat about 2-3 shells per person as they are very rich and filling with the alfredo sauce!
Serve this with garlic bread and a leafy green salad for a complete meal. This makes a great dinner to bring to a new mom too! Package up a ziploc with shells, bring her a jar of sauce and some frozen garlic bread. She can assemble and bake as directed when she needs a quick meal!
