Tara's notes for this recipe:
Not everyone in my family cares for ricotta cheese. So, I stuffed these yummy little guys with ground beef and cream cheese. They were a hit at the dinner table. Everyone asked for seconds :)

This sounds really yummy! I can't stand ricotta, so I usually stay away from stuffed shell recipes, but this is a wonderful solution. And I love cream cheese. Saved! =]
