    Mooloolaba Denise's Note:

    I've found that food recipes for the masses just didn't suit as in our home, we like a lot more seasoning. However, with a daughter that is vegetarian, I adapted this by just eliminating the chicken. It still is a tasty dish to take to events away. Sometimes it is difficult to buy the very large pasta shells, but I have found them at various fruit & veggie barns. My favourite shell is Conchiglioni 87/b by Divella.

      Very tasty combination of ingredients. I had to modify the recipe somewhat because we need to eat gluten-free. I cannot find GF large pasta to stuff, so I made the whole thing as a casserole. I boiled GF pasta, then combined all of the ingredients (except the pasta sauce). I spread a layer of sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish, added the cheesy filling, then topped it with the rest of the sauce and the parmesan and baked it until hot and bubbly. The arrabiata sauce is a nice counterpoint to the creamy filling. This dish will be making a return visit to our dinner table.
