Those look good. My son and I had taco stuffed pasta shells for dinner last Sunday. Really good.

As for my food today, I had a veggie burger for lunch along with Simple Truth vegetable pilaf that consists of brown rice, golden quinoa, red quinoa and peas & carrots. And tonight I'm making quesadillas from tortillas, of course, filled with refried beans, reduced fat sour cream, diced onions, shredded lettuce, a little salsa and diced avocado.

Linda, that photo is Kayelle's stuffed shells from last week's thread. My shells were a couple posts below that. Look a lot alike!

Can you believe that this is the first time I've ever made them? For some reason, I always thought that Himself wouldn't enjoy them. He did! In fact, he seemed OK even with the generous amount of spinach, since he is not a fan. He never fails to surprise.

I used only half the box of shells, and only half the tub of ricotta (I had the quart size). I think I'll make another batch soon, but sub out Italian sausage for the spinach and toss in some fresh-chopped basil.

OMG, I had that song stuck in my head last night when I was in bed, trying to go to sleep. No idea why -- I haven't actually heard it in years. It's so funny that you now have it stuck in your head. Of course, that means it will probably be stuck in my head again.

We had Carbonara..I didn't have any pancetta, so I seasoned some thick slices of side pork in the afternoon, then scraped off the seasoning and fried them as usual..it was a surprising success..

Dinner. I had to add a lot of seasonings to the soup for our taste - Penzeys Southwest Seasoning, bay leaves, hot sauce, more Mexican oregano. It turned out good, though. That's queso fresco on the top.

That "side pork" looks just like bacon. Oh, wait, you're Canadian.

Bacon is cured and usually smoked.
