STUFFED CHICKEN SHELLS....a pantry throw together

Nancy J. Patrykus


Thas morning I received an urgent phone call requesting a potluck dish for noon today!
So checking my pantry...
I came up with a few items ,I had on hand for this imprompto throw together casserole for a funeral luncheon.
Without having to go to the store!
This goes together easy, after first cooking the shells, and draining them upside down on a towel to cool..
The only thing I did not have , that I would have loved to add to the top when serving...
was parsley.
