Freezer Friendly Stuffed Shells | Large Family Recipes

In my recent Big Family Freezer Meals cooking days I made 4 large pans of stuffed shells for my people. These big pans of stuffed shells freeze and later reheat wonderfully. Add a fresh salad, garlic bread, or a cup of fruit for a lovely dinner your family will ask for again and again!
