Creamy Mushroom Stuffed Shells

Mushroom Stuffed Shells

Lately, life has been moving in fast forward for us. Fabi has been working so many hours and Leila has been growing so much every day keeping me very busy. The days are passing by so quickly! Even though life can be chaotic at times, it is important to stop and take a moment to reflect and enjoy family and friends. My favorite way to do this is over good food. One of my favorite comfort dishes to make is this creamy mushroom stuffed shell recipe using Bertolli® Riserva Porcini Mushrooms & White Truffle Oil sauce. If you like mushrooms, you will love this mushroom stuffed shells dish! The mushroom and truffle oil sauce pairs so perfectly with the stuffed shells, and I just love the flavor of it. 

Bertolli® is celebrating 150 years of delicious food, friends and family, so I made this special creamy mushroom stuffed shells dish to help them celebrate. Felice Anniversario and Buono Appetito!

When life gets busy, it is great to prepare some “make-ahead” dinners. You can make the filling for these stuffed giant shells in the morning and refrigerate until ready to stuff and bake in the evening. This creamy mushroom stuffed shells dish is so comforting when served warm right from the oven on a cold day.

Even though life can get chaotic, don’t forget to stop once in a while and enjoy the things you love, be grateful for what you have, and do it over some good food 😉

Are you guys adjusting to the time change? I am not happy about the time change, because I don’t like to run in the dark, and it gets dark so early in the day now! Looks like I will have to convert to a morning exercise person >.< Wish me luck!! Yesterday I was able to get outside for a run just before sunset, and came home to these amazing stuffed shells. There is nothing better than pasta and cheese after a good run 😉

    Made these tonight and they were incredible! Loved the cottage cheese in the shells! Only changes I made were: using baby Bella mushrooms, and a different sauce. Perfection!

    Thank you for this great idea to use our truffle oil. How about adding some chopped fresh spinach to the mix for some green?
