Ok, ok I know two stuffed shells recipes in a row but I had half a box left over after making the Italian Style~Stuffed Pasta Shells and wanted to share what I did with them. These Salad Stuffed Shells are great side dishes and make beautiful appetizers that are pretty and unique enough to serve to guests. Everyone likes them because they are amazingly tasty, easy to eat and so darn cute!
Salad Stuffed Shells
serves: 16-18 shells
You can make your salad how ever you would normally for a side salad, top with your favorite dressing and chop up. Here is what I used in the pictured salad shells;
1/2 box jumbo pasta shells
1/2 mixed leaf bagged salad
Couple of handfuls of broccoli sprouts
1/2 zucchini, shredded
1 carrot, shredded
1 tomato, chopped
Couple of splashes of fat free Italian salad dressing
Couple dashes of salt and pepper
Cook pasta according to package direction, drain and put back in the pan with cold water to cool and keep them moist.
Mix all the salad ingredients and dressing together well to fully coat with the dressing, pour out onto a cutting board and chop up a bit so there are no overly big pieces. Stuff your shells. Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately. ENJOY!
